Missy...when I was 65 ;-)

The world lost a special lady yesterday. Forever the nature-loving garden enthusiast, my grandma showered her love on the many plants, animals, and people in her life. She took pride in her award winning fern garden and the delicate english roses that flourished under her care. When not in the garden, she could be found in her aviary, with tiny birds alighted on her head, much to her delight. She is the only woman I have ever know to have a laugh that goes "teehee" which could often be heard in her appreciation and amazement with her pets and wildlife. The many cats she loved leisurely spent their time in her outdoor cat hotel, and of course the two house cats Thelma and Louise that she adopted after the passing of her lifelong friend Joan were very near and dear to her heart. Also a fun-spirited prankster, I'm sure she is the one to blame for my dad's vast repertoire of jokes and pranks. The only old lady I know of that would buy a happy meal, mostly for the toy, she was a young-at-heart firecracker that stood strongly by her beliefs that everyone deserves to be loved equally, and there is strength in diversity. She will be missed, and her spirit will be remembered through all of my interactions with nature. Love you Grandma Elda. "Elda? Elda?! ELDAAAAAAAAA?!?!"

There was never a garden as beautiful or as loved as hers. I don't know how she did it and only wished I could have seen it in person. I miss my talented friend, the laughs the wreaths she made were so special also.
