This pic I wasn't in...but it was taken in front of my Grandma's old house in Prescott. 99.9% of my memories are from this house and I miss it so dearly!
Nicknamed "Big Red" for her beautiful striking Red hair that she wore into behives in her younger days, she had a vibrant personality that I like to think I take after a little. She truly worked her way to the top all on her own and always took care of anyone and everyone. My mother is that way. I will tell you that I can handle her loss okay... it was going through my Grandmother's things that tore me to pieces. Bringing up so many memories, making me wonder certain things, just going through it all without her there was so hard and I truly do not know how my mother, Aunt and Uncle have been able to do it. I have a new appreciation for the strength my mom has shown through everything over the past several years she has taken care of my Grandma. I am so blessed to be able to have a few nice treasures of my Grandmothers to keep in the family and keep her legacy strong.
