    Richard's Mom was probably the Grandmother who influenced me mostly. Unfortunately, she isn't around to see that I am trying to emulate her wonderful example.

    Grandma Kc: Considering the person that you are in general and the grandmother you are in particular, she had to have been one heckuva woman. ♥

    My maternal grandmother (my Granny) was more of an influence on my life than anyone else ever was, miss her terribly, even after forty-five years.

    That is a beautiful picture! In their own way, both of my grandmothers made a difference in my life.
