Guestbook

My strongest memories of my grandmother are of her offering me RC Cola, ice cream, or other treats she had stashed on her high fireplace mantle. I remember plastic covers on her sofa, long ago. She was born just before the Depression in rural Kentucky. She survived a terrible car crash, her parents' divorce, a mean stepmother, living in Portland for the WWII effort, loving my gregarious grandfather from the first moment she saw his thick black hair, six babies and no disposable diapers, and so many grandchildren and great-great grandchildren that she likely woke up each morning wondering "whose birthday is it today?" She loved to swing, sneak the occasional cigarette, and put salt on the rim of her beer. She took care of me when I had to stay home from elementary school for chickenpox and we rode out an earthquake together. I always felt safe and loved in her presence. I am so grateful that I got to have her for as long as I did.--Cassie
