Lovely tribute.
What a beautiful tribute, excellently written. It made me hope that my own precious grandchildren will have lovely memories to cherish when I go to heaven.

Oh yes, such a wonderful tribute! Grandma's smiling every time one of us reads this, I'm sure. Bless you for sharing this beautiful (and well-written) story.

A lovely story about a loving and well-loved lady. How lucky you are to have had such a grandmother. She would have enjoyed your colorful story no doubt!

Excellent writing. So vivid. I think everyone can , at least in part, relate to what you're trying to say. My wife's grandma had to be moved into a place where they could care for her, and it looks like soon her grandfather will have to go also.It was soul destroying to split them up from so many good years of loving marriage. Sorry for the digress, just brought things up. Well done on the story. You truly belong in Masters.

Beautiful tribute Rachel, well done! I am sorry for your loss, but even in the scope of a long full life, it remains just the tuning of the instruments for the symphony of eternity to come. Thanks for blessing us with your writing.

What an absolutely beautiful tribute! I followed the link from your Challenge brick-throwing and was delighted to see a video of your grandparents singing "Jesus Loves Me." How precious that was and how it made the tears flow. This is such a lovely entry that I very much hope it wins big! It deserves it. Kudos!

This was lovely. My favorite line was: My grandma had a beautiful silvery soprano voice and a laugh that sounded like Christmas bells. Excellent writing.
I, too, am sorry for your loss but am happy for you that you are blessed with such lovely memories of gramma's younger years.
