she was everything

she always stopped to smell the roses...
and tell us the proper name of every flower,
and her first memory of that flower.

she always humored my Grandpa
and posed in the most random places.
she loved her animals, especially her kitty,
and all the other wild animals my Grandpa brought home.

she was a mother to four adoring children,
a grandmother to five,
and a great-grandmother to three.

...she was more than just a home-maker, flower-picker and pie-maker;
she was my grandma.

and she will be missed everyday until i see her again in heaven.
