Me And Nan, Christmas 2007

Original text in January 2008: Scott took this image of me and our soon-to-be 93 year old grandmother. Usually, she won't have her picture taken, but she was dressed up on Christmas Day and allowed it this time.

 

New text, March 1st 2012: For those who don't know, my grandmother stepped in and took over the role of mother (after my mother and father split about 34 years ago) for myself, my sister, and my younger brother. She passed away just over 2 years ago, at 94, (when I was busy working almost 2 full-time jobs) and I'm finally recognizing now just how much I miss her profound presence in my life. She was always there and she was always strong. In fact, I wish I had more of her strength. Nan, wherever you are, I love you and I miss you.
