Awww...she was a real special lady your granny. I loved this tender tribute to her and how you were able to bring reality into the entry. Well done.

God bless~
Grammy sounded like a special lady. Thank you.
Congratulations on ranking 22 overall! Happy Dance!!
This is so sweet. It left me with a warm fuzzy feeling. I wonder if it was because it was a true story if that's why I felt like some of the details were missing. It's likely a vibrant memory in your mind but took me a second or two to process it. I was a tiny bit confused about the Tommy Jr. and Tommy Sr and at first I wasn't sure if Grammy knew the saying was life of Riley or not, but after thinking decided she probably had listened to it on the radio and second, and even more important, is that it didn't matter. I could feel your love for the woman so clearly. You made me stop and think of my grandmas. I think your slight twist on the topic was inspired. Your piece was lovely and I hope it gets a special place of honor in your family so the grandbaby sleeping in the crib knows of your Grammy. :)
