This past Wednesday I had to say good bye to my grandma. My grandma was a great and strong woman. She raised eight children. One of those being my mom. I have so many fond memories of my grandma as a kid. From going to her house and spending time with her to my favorite recipes like her bread pudding. I am so going to miss her cooking more than anything. I feel like I learned many lessons from her. I think I got my love of god from her. I remember going to church with her as a child. I just really appreciate the memories I created with her.
As I think about my grandma one thing I find myself regretting is not spending more time with her as an adult. I am 38 and I think since I turned 18 and got married I think I saw her maybe 10 times. I think that is kind of sad. She really didn’t know my kids at all. She got to see my youngest again back in November. I had a feeling that I needed to see her so I did. I wonder how much they would have benefitted from being around their great grandmother. I also wish I had sat down with her and learned more of her story. I learned more about her at her funeral than I ever did in a lifetime. My grandma was a private person but I am sure had I sat down with her she would’ve shared with me. I didn’t even know she had siblings. I remember my mom mentioning an aunt but not much else. I just cherish stories. I have stories from my mom of the kind of mother she was. She was a good mom. My mom smiles when she talks about her.
My grandma is the second person in 3 years that I wish I had just made time for. There are people who I spent a great deal of time with as a child that I would love to reunite with. I don’t want to keep wishing I had just picked up the phone and called someone when they are no longer here. I would love to make the time now. That’s what I am working on doing better.
Many people who lose a love one want to find some way to honor that person. They will plant a tree, release balloons, and many other ways. Some people even consider doing things such as creating something more permanent like a nameplate or plaque. There are a number of companies that make plaques for people who want to honor their love ones. One company that comes to mind for me is East Point Foundry. This company has been around since 1948. They do plaques, nameplates, lettering, architectural, casting, and sculpting. The steps to getting a project with East Point Foundry is pretty easy. There are only five steps.
