This weekend my maternal grandmother passed away 4 days before her 92 birthday. This picture take years ago, was the only proper picture I felt grandma would approve. Grandma was very proper. She held fast to traditional of etiquette that today have fallen by the wayside. She is the reason I still write and mail, not email, thank you notes. She always used a napkin, knew which side of the plate the wine glass went on, always matched her purse with her shoes and never, ever wore white after labor day. She always had a smile and a hug for me. For years she mailed me Cathy Comics from her weekly paper, just because I'd asked. I never heard her speak poorly of another. She was not one to enter into conflict, in fact I think she avoided it at all costs. She raised 5 kids, took care of her husband and her mother for years. She may not have been the best cook but the one thing I could count on at grandma's was that she would have Chocolate! She was loved and adored by her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.
