Goodbye Miss Daisy, Goodbye.

My Grandmother Jordan passed away last Thursday, she was a crafty, kind, wonderful, incredibly fabulous Lady who taught me everything I know about hosting parties. She is one of the main factors that made me the person I am. My biggest theatre fan, she saw every one of the shows I was in and everyone of  the sets I disigned. She always truly believed in the career path that I took! (She loved hearing about what was going on at the theatre, and what shows I was working on.) We were very close, one of my favorite parts of teenage life was driving her to the beauty shop every Wednesday since I was 16. Which earned her the nickname "Miss Daisy". Haha oh the trouble we got into!
Today we put her to rest. This post small is insufficient, but at the current time it is all I can offer.


(This is one of the very first 78 records I bought as a kid, it is "our song")

I Love you Miss Daisy.

"Be seeing you..."

My heart goes out to you and your family. I know how much you loved your Miss Daisy. You had a special relationship with her that will live forever in your heart. I lost a special grandfather when I was about your age, and today the memories are as clear as if they were yesterday. That can never be taken away from you.

Mick you and your family are in my prayers. Our grandmothers influence us so much more than we know. As time passes you will have moments when you realize just how far that influence extends. May that bring you some peace at this difficult time.

You are in my prayers.
