What a Firecracker She Was!

gabriel publishing

A particular evening once was filled with special merriment because it was my grandmother’s birthday.  Cousins, aunts, uncles, we were all there to wish her well as she greeted her 80th year.

Before the evening was over we each told a story or two about Grandma which made many of us laugh, some cry, and some hear for the first time what a firecracker she was in her youth.

Enlist friends of your elders who know stories about them.  Get as many details as you can, for the person being celebrated will hear, perhaps for the first time, how stupendous they were – and still are – to have their memory kept alive in others.
