RIP to the only Grandmother I knew. She married into a family, soon to grow (ie. an older, handsome man.) Her new husband had 3 children, all over 18. Within my family tree, (she married before I was born) she treated me like a grand child, since I had not other Grand Mom I am forever thankful for filling that role.

As I matured she treated me like a peer within "this family." She never gave-up secrets shared, but she always extended trust, and love to friends and others I brought around.

I haven't cried until now, when typing this, but I want to thank her for being my Grand Mom. She was my mothers' step-mom, only 12-years different between the two of them in age. Yet, they connected to provide a loving impact on my family, she wasn't acting, SHE WAS MY GRANDMOTHER. My mother, married to an Air-Force officer, after birthing young children accepted Jean, and after many visits 200+ miles away, us visiting them, them visiting us provided a Grand Mother I never would have had without the shared efforts of my mom and Grand Mom. My cousins, I probably would have had much less contact with too.

Her place within the family, by wanting to love us, and us loving her whittled down her square-peg to a perfect circle, in (this), her Grand Son's eyes by she assured this post, tears and memories. I'll gladly proclaim I am her legacy, I AM HER GRANDSON.

I'll miss her dearly, I'll miss her love of Antique Cars, (she had a Classic Mustang (Sort-of, lol), A Cadillac (Long, Yellow **introduced me to 8-tracs.) and loved a 1928 Model-A ford her husband had.

Her cooking was hesitant, but Shake and Bake pork-chops, strawberry rhubarb pie (rhubarb from her garden) home made Salad Dressings, her mothers' recipe and the best I ever had, and most of all RUM CAKE! Yeah, with a good recipe, good direction, encouragement she was everything I could have asked as a Grand Mother. RIP Ma'am. I love you Grand Mom, I can never thank you enough for your Grand Kids as you would have, as your own.
