And though it's always sweet sorrows to part, you know you'll always remain in my heart -Lawrence Welk

Today, 100 years ago, my grandma was born. The sad thing is that we lost her last year right after her 99th birthday. According to my grandma, life is simple and I couldn't agree more. Raising a family that admires and misses you long after you've past is a great legacy. It isn't about how you dress, what car you drive or even your bank account. In the end, how we treat each other is all that matters. Thank you grandma for leading such an amazing life and teaching your daughters and grand kids what it means to be an amazing person.

  3. This is so sweet, and 99--wow! That is one impressive life. My grandma is 90 and I'm really anxious about losing her. Yours was clearly such an inspiration.

  7. I lost my grandmother in what will be 8 years ago this May and she is still always on my mind.
    I wish she could have lived to almost 100...29 years was hardly enough time....

    Beautiful post!

  13. Very endearing post. I've often thought we have much to learn from our elders. I still have a grandmother who is 94 - she lives on the east coast so I rarely get to see her. She's not really with it. However, she still cares about food, getting her hair and nails done and clothes.

  14. Marcie,
    As your Grandma would have said "You said it all." Grandma would have been so very proud. She will always be in our hearts and conversations.
    Love You,
    MOM

  17. What an honoring tribute to your Grandmother. I too have been blessed with the strong heritage of a wonderful Grandma. Their love and examples live on for generations through children and grandchildren. I hope and pray that I will someday leave that kind of heritage. What a Blessing!
