A tribute to Grandmother

Today is Gorgeous Grandma day. My Grandmother Helen was our family’s rock and mentor. I have so many wonderful memories of her. The love of her faith, family and Irish heritage were the central part of my Grandma. The homestead at 914 S Iriving Ave was the school of Janssen family values. The meaning of a hard day’s work, with respect and honesty to everyone you meet. She would give you the best hugs and the warmest welcome. She is truly missed and was graced by God to live to the age of 97. Now that I am a new Grandma I can only hope that I can bestow the same memories to our precious Nevaeh.

Please share you memories of your Grandmother.

    Oh, such lovely warm memories you have of your grandma. Itโ€™s up to you now, you are responsible for creating memories for own grandchildren – make them good ones, even if daft ones like mine!
    Thank you, Mary Anne ๐Ÿ™‚
