My grandma passed away Monday night. We were all incredibly close and I spent many days after school with my grandparents. My Granddad passed away when I was 12 and my grandma then spent many days at our house. Several years later she got into a bad car accident and had a few infections while in the hospital which started her downward spiral of dementia. She never went back to her home and lived with family until she had to be put in a home. She was extremely feisty and wasn't always so sweet with the staff, but she recognized us and sometimes knew us by name. I can't help but smile when I think of her and all of her quirky ways. She will be missed, but I know she's in a much better place. This is a picture of Me, my Grandma holding Evan, and my Mom.
