Grandmommy


Grandmommy

This is one of the last pictures I took of my mother after her cancer recurred. Later she did not want pictures taken. It was January, 1993. #1 Son was 6 years old, and my mother was 67. The weekend after my parents were told how sick she was, that perhaps she had four to six months left, I took him to see her.
She died about four months later. He is the only grandchild old enough to remember her. Somewhere I think I have a picture of the two of them on a beach in Boothbay Harbor playing with his Ninja Turtles. If I can find it, we will scan it and post it.

  1. R’s grandmother was also Grandmommy! And his mother wanted to be Grandmommy as well, but we were so close to the original, that we just couldn’t do it. So we suggested G-mommy. Which suits her perfectly.
    She does look young!

  2. I’m so sorry. My mom died early too and my son was 4 months old. So sad. It goes with us forever . . . or at least for a long, long time.
