I remember every Thanksgiving spending it at my grandma’s house. These are some of my fondest memories. My grandma was one of the most influential persons in my life. As I got older she became more of a friend than a parent. We would sit around and talk for hours. There was nothing that I couldn’t talk to here about. She always had the right answers she was the smartest person I have ever known. Out of know nowhere I got a call and found out that she had bone cancer. They said she only had 6 months to live. I was devastated. Her spirit was so great she live 10 years past that date. In that time I witnessed strength beyond measure. She never complained or gave up on life. To be able to witness that first hand changed my life forever. She was the most amazing human if my life could be a fraction of what her was I would have no complaints when it was over. Some one could right a book about her life and it would be a best seller. I love the photo because it symbolizes so much to me. I took this when she was very sick but she would still cook for all of us. The negative from this shoot tore when I developed it. This symbolized how I felt torn by the thought of her being so sick but also feeling so proud. I am so thankful for having here in my life!
