For Teresa

I got to see my grandmother and grandfather this weekend. Although they have both passed on many years ago, they were brought back to me by the magic of old home movies. You see my mom and dad had some movies transferred to DVD recently and we spent part of Father's Day tooling down memory lane. What a ride it was. The emotion that rushed to the surface at the sight of gramma completely took me off guard. I realized how much I miss her. Having passed on in 1977 when I was 13, I can't even say I knew her for the woman she was. To me she was gramma and nothing else. I know a little about her through her old photo album back from the 1920s. I treasure that album. As soon as I'm done filling these two custom orders, I need to bead a tribute to gramma.
