TRIBUTE TO GRANDMA SHUPE






I got news yesterday that my dear sweet grandma Ella Shupe passed away. It is a biter sweet time. She had Alzheimer's and lived her last few years in a nursing home. Which was no life. So as you can imagine we are happy to see her in a better place. However, thinking of the years we lost to her disease is making me feel a little gypped. She has missed so much of our lives and we have missed so much of hers. Anyway.. here are some things I remember about my grandma CB...
the smell of her pink soap, Bath time at her house, patty cake, her songs, how she loved birds and flowers, her wrinkly old hands how soft they where, her sugar cookies, her long black hair that she would roll in a bun, her lunches she would make for me. She bought some romaine noodle soup and didn't know how to make it so she made her own little noodle soup out of there already packaged soup. It was good too. I remember she liked to read the readers digest, hunting arrow heads, soft hugs, and many, many other things that I will not list here. But I just want to say that I love you grandma.. I will miss you until we can meet again.

I don't remember giving you a book at all!!!! I'm trying to think what books I read then that were 600 pages!!!! Or what book I even brought with me to college!!! I hadn't read Harry Potter yet but that's the only big book I can think of. What was it about? It could have been Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites but then again, I don't own that book... 600 pages? That's a bigger book and I can't think of anything! Is that all you remember is the number of pages?

I am so sorry to hear about your loss but after having both of my grandpa's die with Alzheimer's, I know what a painful struggle that is. I am happy to know that your little grandma is in a better place.
