Wordless Wednesday: Happy Birthday, Grandma

My grandma would have been 87-years-old yesterday but she passed away a year ago. Her final wish was to have her ashes dispersed in the Gulf of Mexico (although at one point she wanted her ashes placed in the trash so no one would have to worry about what to do with her) and family made it happen.

I miss her, she was my primary family here in Southwest Florida.

Happy Birthday, Grandma.

Sidebar: The past two Valentine’s Days have been spent on boats for memorial services. The first for my former husband. 2010 will break the streak…I hope.
