Granny: A motivated, multitalented, artistic introverted, soul... So enthusiastic over wildlife and nature. You were a progressive pioneer to recycling prior to the environmental movement. Your environmental wisdom forced during wartime, when supplies were rationed. Yes historically, you survived and endured numerous tragedies that unified generations to come: The Depression, WWII, Kennedy and Martin Luther King assassinations, and The Towers. Personally, you endured far too many untimely, painful loses of close loved ones. Now is your time to rest Granny. Be reassured the language you taught me was pure compassion a gift, I am eternally grateful for.
