We were truly blessed to have had an amazing influence in our lives, Dolly, my Grammy. She was one of those people who treated each and every person in her life as a gift. She was supportive, caring, smart, and fun. When she became ill with Alzheimer's, the entire family (all her children and grandchildren) worked together to care for her. When she passed away, she left a hole in our family that we try to fill by following her example.

That Christmas, we gave all the members of the family angel ornaments created from her favorite red and white pjs. Since we had all helped care for her, everyone recognized the fabric. Decorating the tree at Christmas had always been a family affair with Grammy and now, each year, when that special ornament is hung, we smile and remember the joy she brought to our lives.
