A Feisty New Angel

Last Thursday, April 24th, Heaven gained another angel. Our family lost my 96 year old great grandmother, Marie, to cancer. I'm very thankful to have the memories I do of her. She was extremely lively and feisty even at 96 years old (but don't tell her I told you she was that old she would seriously smack me). As a kid I would always call her grandma mamamama marie, I think she got a kick out of that. I have lots of memories of her in her 80's after she had a stroke claiming she could still dance and that she'd never been sick a day in her life. She used to open up the door to the balcony of her appartment and puts peanuts on the floor and watch the squirrels come in. My grandma would yell at her but she'd just laugh and do it anyway. She led a tough life but didn't let that phase her too much. She was always a loving and caring figure in my life and things won't be the same without her. I'll miss her freaking out about the news and going on and on about her family and her past. I just can't believe she's not here anymore. I love you so much Great Granny, I know you're in a better place now but I still miss you.
