Today is my Grandmother’s 87th Birthday. She raised me from the age of 5 until I joined the Navy at 18. Then about 6 years ago her & my Grandfather moved in with us and we took care of them. Sadly my Grandfather passed in February and her health declined. Now she resides in a Retirement Home and we visit with her several times a week. Later on this morning we are going to pick her up and take her out for lunch and a small party. Happy Birthday Grandma. We love you! 🙂
note: The photo on the left was taken when she was 22 years old. She had just married my Grandfather and was expecting my father. The photo on the right was taken a couple of weeks ago in her room at the home.
