    times in Mexico, and then we would all follow her lead through multiple prayers. I would appreciate the way my grandma had a very easygoing presence. She would never minimize difficult times that I would encounter. That easygoing presence she possessed would help to calm me down during difficult times. In addition, I remember that she would gently rub my head with the tips of her fingers, which was another special calming technique that we would all love. I developed a sense of freedom to…

    When growing up I knew my grandmothers from both sides of the family because they were still alive. I did not see my grandfather from my parental side because he died before I was born, but I was able to see my grandfather from my maternal side. Also, I felt the tenderness of my grandfather’s love before he passed away when I was aged 4. I can remember whenever he came visiting to my house he brings plenty of candies; he also gave me money to buy more if the once he bought were not enough. I…

    The day I received the news of my grandma being diagnosed Alzheimer’s was a emotional day. I didn’t have time to take in what was going on and I felt speechless. The news was thrown at me like it was nothing and after that it was all business. I was told that I would be taking a break working at our family restaurant and spending some time at my grandmother’s along with my cousin. At first I was a little confused because I thought to myself that I always spend my time there with her. But…

    it. Here is the start of my growth. With my eyes closed, my hands shaky and my face wet from tears, I started dreaming. The memories playing in my head like a favourite old movie, the sound of her voice calming me like the song I’ll never forget the lyrics to; I remembered her. I opened my eyes, the car had stopped, and I hesitantly got out. The distance from home to the cemetery felt like forever, and I didn’t want it to end. My steps were slow and controlled, leading up to her grave. There I…

    My Nana died when I was three years old. I didn’t know her very well. Everyone says things like, “Your grandmother was a wonderful lady.” and “Jenelle was a sweetheart.” They’d say all of this to me and I would try to feel some type of emotion for her but I could never conjure any up. I have exactly three memories about her. I remember her giving me this beautiful baby doll at Christmas. It was black with long black curly hair and she had on this red and white ruffled dress. I am pretty sure I…

    memories of my grandma will always be with me. She opened my eyes to just how paradoxical life actually is and taught me during our brief time together that a human being must be able to settle with their past, and live in the present, whilst preparing for the future. In her case it was death. I was six years old when I last saw her; two weeks before my birthday. I hadn’t known that it was the last time. I remember the time when my grandma was alert and active and how she played so many games…
