My grandma - she was an amazing, talented, beautiful woman with unbelievable strength. She hated having her picture taken and would just croak if she knew her photo was on the internet! :-)
Next, enter my mom. She was extremely talented as well, kind to everyone she ever met, and had admirable faith. She was one of the hardest working people I've ever known.
I thank them for being who they were and trying to instill in me just a few of their wonderful strengths. My heart misses them both every day.
