My sweet, fantastic Grandmother passed away on Tuesday. Words cannot express how deeply I adored this woman! She was a gem, a wise and wonderful lady and I will miss her terribly.She is truly the classiest woman I have ever met - I never saw her without her lipstick, eye lashes or her nails done. I think every article of clothing was bedazzled with a bead or a sequin. She worked hard to take care of her family and had such a great sense of humor. Her family was her crown jewel, she always stressed the importance of family relationships. She had 9 children, 50 grandchildren and 85 great-grandchildren! We had so much in common...we would talk about movies and music, she was marvelous. I am thrilled that she got to see me perform on stage and that my boys were able to know and love her. It's going to be hard on Cache that she's gone.
While I will always miss her, how wonderful that she is now with her beloved husband! A tender note - she passed away on the 24th, 21 months to the day after my Granddad. She missed him so much and would often joke about how she didn't know why she was still here, why she was left behind. I am grateful that she stayed a bit longer, just so I could spend a little more time with her. I. Loved. Her.
Until we meet again!
