Great story of a memorable grandmother. We forget how much grit it took to survive then, but you've captured it here. Some misspelled words eirie, which should be eerie. I didn't understand the beginning of this sentence, either: "Before a garden was possible, Grandma, I recall vividly, had grown a profuse array of Hyacinths in the front porch planter box." Just fill in some of the blanks for those of us who didn't actually know her. Praise god for grandparents!
What lovely bittersweet memories. There are a number of grammatical errors in this piece, but the writing talent is evident. Keep at it!
