    Grandma was a model and example of inner strength in more ways than most would realize. She showed me true unconditional love, especially in a time of my life I was sure such a thing didn’t exist. One of my proudest moments was introducing my children to her shortly after they were born and then watching my twins forge a friendship with her when she lived in Texas for a while during Covid quarantine. Your impact has made me realize how lucky I was to have you as a grandma.
