I am honored to get to say a few words about my grandmother. She was an outgoing and fun-loving woman who enjoyed the company of her friends and family. When I think about my grandmother the following words come to mind: patience, family, church, friends, travel, gardening, and cooking.
My grandmother lived her life to the fullest.
Personally her life was as successful as her wish. My grandmother raised seven children and had about a lot of grandchildren.. myself included. Her children are all successful and turn out to be how she wanted them to. They are mostly married and building families of their own. My grandmother also had numerous friends of which I probably don’t know some. She was so outgoing and caring it was hard not to be her friend. She loved to entertain and hardly a day went by where there wasn’t someone at her house cooking or probably just talking to her
I have so many great memories with my grandmother. She taught me a lot over the years and the really little time I spent with her while I was in school.. including, baking (only garri)😂, cooking(of which I never still knew how to) and more. Not only was she a great teacher (taught me how to speak my language), but she was also a great listener. I knew that I could go to her with any problems I had and she would offer her advice.
I spent very little time with her of which I would really miss and appreciate…but I miss her so much more.
