The Last Thing She Said to Me

The last thing she said to me
was Enjoy those babies.

They're the best thing
you could ever do,
The best thing
To live your life for.

With everything else
you can do so well, darlin

Nothing else
will bring you so much joy.
Those babies

For me.

Dearest Gran... I miss you.


  1. I miss her. She wasn't related to me via DNA, but to me she was more than a dear friend, more than Brian's mom or your grandmother. She was a venerated source of love and wisdom. I miss her sorely.

  2. My heart goes out to you and your family. Love you.

  3. I miss her too, every day. On Sunday, when we were blessing our little Caroline, I just wished she could be there. But then I realized she was and always will be.
    She loved all her babies, and I think she gave all of us the same advice!
