grambie was in chicago too, the biggest reason we decided last-minute to go visit. she's 92. i love this woman rather fiercely, and am much like her I think. fynn has many of her expressions. i love her hands. seeing her at my folks rather than at the retirement center was heaven, as she was much more relaxed and not worrying about the kids being noisy or what time dinner was. and i wasn't worrying about my kids destroying her room or running shrieking down the hall and turning over the puzzle table. she was in heaven just watching the kids and couldn't get enough of it. i wish I could rest my head on her lap every night ... it's one of the most comforting places on this earth to me.
