I Remember Still...

I remember going to bed with my shoes on...

I remember banging pots and pans on New Years Eve...

I remember black and white cookies, Snack Pack Pudding and drinking hot cocoa out of the Ronald McDonald mug you got for me...

I remember funny jokes while we laid in the dark trying to go to sleep...

I remember going on walks with the dog while we talked...

I remember you thinking that leopard print spandex looked "pre
tty"...

I remember you dancing to my heavy metal music to make me smile...

I remember long talks after midnight...

I remember being relieved when you came to spend time with me while Frank was getting us settled in another state...

I remember being so thankful for you coming to visit when I felt totally alone...

I remember Sunday dinners together and drives...

I remember going shopping at the mall just for fun...

I remember the many McDonald's Happy Meals you ate so Nick could have more of the toys...

I remember my heart breaking when you moved away...

I remember feeling helpless that I wasn't there to hold your hand when you were sick...

I remember being devastated when you were gone...

On this day, your birthday, I remember you, Grandma. I miss you everyday and love you still.

Aww, that's very sweet of you! And speaking of dancing to heavy metal music, have you ever stopped while dropping and met my fictional band? I think you'd really GET them.

Stacey, that was very sweet. Those memories are a great treasure. I remember oatmeal toast with real butter for breakfast, sleeping in the really TALL bed, and watching Lawrence Welk with my Grammy & Grampa.

Hi Stacie! Great post! Your grandma must be very proud of you. Just remember that for so long as we keep the people we love alive in our hearts, they would never be dead nor gone.
