My family had some characters like this but nothing written down to memorialize their tifts and sarcasm and threats lol.

I do have a love letter that my great grandmother wrote to my great grandfather during WW2 that my mom recently found in a box of stuff she took from great grandma's house after she died. It is a very sweet, beautiful letter and made me tear up.

Wish I had some that showed her sharpness like yours because she was kind of a trip lol. I speak to old ladies who are still alive who went to the same church they did and none of them liked her. She used to tell me how many of the old ladies always wanted to steal my grandpa from her so she treated them like they deserved - like sh*t lol. All of them spoke of how nice grandpa was and how she was kind of a b**ch. She really was but she loved grandpa. They were married for almost 64 years when he passed away.
Awwww, that's a cute synopsis of your grandmother! I mean, now it is (like that letter I framed - probably funnier with the distance of time!).

I wonder if you could frame the letter you found?

My mom did something sweet for me many years after my grandmother had died - she gave me a box of every letter I'd ever written to my grandmother! Now that was a lot because ever since I was a very young child, my parents had expected me to write my grandmother (who I loved dearly) about once a month, so I did it. And she had saved every letter! Eventually my mom had gone through all those letters from my brothers and me and divvied up a box for each of us.

Since my mother grew up in a foster home, I never knew what my ancestry was. It was a let down as well as a revelation when I finally was able to order a 23andMe report to finally have some of the puzzle pieces fit!
