Grandma's Garden Blessing

Back in October, My Grandmother passed away at the age of 96. She didn't want anything done after she was gone---no viewing, no funeral, no fuss! She was cremated and we put her ashes into her beloved "Grandma Bag"(It has hearts and all the grandchildren's names on the front). Then, my Mom, sister Andrea, Aunt Maureen, and myself got to work and created this bookmark keepsake. We each added to the life story and searched for poems that she would have liked. Two of the poem pieces were in her her desk and the rest we found on the Internet. After putting all the part together and laminating, -we sent them to everyone in the family and on Grandma's Christmas card list. We won't ever forget her. Her memories, recipes and stories live on in everyone who knew her. I love you Grandma.
