The End of an Era, Farewell to a true friend


It is a very sad day here.  My heart is broken, and I'm a man, suddenly, of few words.  Taxes, yes, college tours yes, but I didn't plan on having to add "write a eulogy" to my week of activities for my beloved Grandmother Nan.   She was a proud woman, she did NOT want to go to the hospital or a nursing home and as it turned out, didn't have to.  Fiercely independent, she was a bear fighting, deer hunting, squirrel hating, outspoken, stubborn, and opinionated but lovable.  My favorite picture of her is above.  That was a dang nice pike!   She was happy yesterday her cardinals were singing at her feeder and seeing her smile yesterday looking at my son, Allwin and at her namesake, Lucy Burton (my sister's youngest daughter), melted  my heart.

I have nothing else to say right now,   I miss her so.

    1. Thanks, she was more myth and legend than a Grandma sometimes to some it seemed, but she was just Nan to me
