An Ode to Gran

This week, our family has faced the devastation of a loved one moving from full speed ahead to instead lagging several steps behind. We await news, continue to hope, and prepare for the road ahead. With the hope that her seventieth birthday gift can someday be shared with her, noting “Happiness is finding a scratch for every itch,” given a newly found inability to properly reach her back, this one is for you Gran.

In common, we love the same few.

Strength and confidence followed you.

Education and values at our core

Words we adore but our family, much more.

Faux Gran to some, but our Gran new.

To hope, love, and bravery as we walk forward into the unknown…

We thank you for sending strength, love, and support to our home.
