I loved this story! Beautifully, vividly written--great specific detail with the canned peaches, etc. I could see the grandma and her devoted daughter, as well as their surroundings; felt as though I were there and knew them personally. I could also relate, as I have some friends who are a lot like Grandma at two nursing homes where I volunteer. We also sing hymns together!

I also really liked the refrain "Grandma and me" repeated after every paragraph. It lent a lovely rhythm to the story. Great job!

A DAVEY for the emotion it bring up my throat.

Grandchildren are a gift from Heaven. Such a special bond connects the two generations. You have captured the essence, here, so well.
