Today would be my Grandma’s birthday.

This a picture of her and her brother Herb from earlier this year. I miss her every day, but especially today. 

She taught me about our family’s history because she was an avid genealogist. Hell, she taught all of us about the history of the family going back for many generations.

She also taught me how to garden. Or in my case, how to kill plants since gardening has never been a strong suit of mine. 🥀

Grandma taught me about love and showed me the strength that can be found in faith. She showed me how much we can all grow from volunteering – the Colorado State Fair was one of her favorites. And she showed me what it was like to love someone forever because she never stopped loving my Grandfather.

She is an inspiration to me, always.
