Yes - it is amazing. She was the youngest child of German immigrants and raised on a farm. She riased two daughters (as a working mom in the 40's and 50s!) and was able to see her 4 grandchildren graduate high school and college. She had 7 great grandchildren and lived to see one graduate high school. She had a wonderful (and occasionally dirty!) sense of humor and loved talking politics. She didn't have a sweet tooth but made wonderful coconut cream pies. I have many many good memories and feel very blessed to have had her in my life - and my kids lives.

Well it's good that you can look back and be happy for memories. That's how I felt when my grandfather died. Yes I was sad that he was gone, but he had a nice long life (94 years old) and I have plenty of funny and sweet stories of him.

How old was your gma?

Ohio - she would have been 98 on Saturday. Not too shabby considering she smoked for a good number of years - although - she quit cold turkey when she got some chest pain (in her 60s maybe?) and felt it was a sign from God to quit smoking. Never picked up another cig. That's how she was. If something needed to be done, you just did it.

Sorry MM. I know it's hard to lose a grandparent as my maternal grandma passed a year and a half ago.

I just watched it. That lady was hilarious. "Do whatever you want as long as it doesn't involve running, being in the sunlight, or touching synthetic materials."

MM- the amazing longevity of your grandmother! That is a wonderful thing. She must have really seen & known life. I never got to meet any of my grandparents & come from a small family in general; always wanted big family gatherings.
