Today a lady who has been a part of my family for over forty years passed away...
First an foremost she was a lady, grandmother to my children, ex mother-in-law, a good Christian and not last by any means a good friend .... which she had to be to put up with a crazy ole man like me.... plus she had a little dry sense of humor...
A short story about her sense of humor ... She had asked me what I wanted for Christmas one year, I looked up in the air thinking of something to tease her with and it came to me .... I told her a new truck would probably be about it ... She looked at me with a sheepish grin and said is that all ... I told her that was all I really needed that came to mind ... Hmmm, she said. Well guess what I received that year for Christmas ... You got it ... a brand new truck ! Two inch long Hot Wheels or Tonka truck that is .... LoL ... She was a very frugal person who grew up in hard times and could pinch a penny till ole Abe cried ... Now if she for one minute had thought that I really needed a truck, she would have tried and gotten me one ... maybe not a new one but that is beside the point ... She was a such a wonderful human being and I am a very lucky person for having had her in my life... I am really going to miss teasing her. You know I have a feeling she just might miss it also ....
