(Sent to Grandma on Mother's Day,2006)

Grandma,

Mothers Day is quickly approaching and I got to thinking that the only picture I have of you and I together is one Harmony took a few years back and that made me sad. However, I instantly realized that I had something even better…I have a head full of great memories that I could play like a movie in my head at any moment. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite memories with you.

I remember kicking “our” rock up and down the hill while walking Kindle.

I remember you taking me to the Shrine Auditorium and working as an usher and sneaking me in so I could see the Nutcracker.

I remember adventures like going to the Tar Pits or the train yard or the museum. (I also remember crying when we got lost in the hills and you told me, “Don't worry, we're not lost, we're on an adventure.)

I remember going to Bob's Big Boy with you and Grandpa for a special treat or picking a new restaurant from the big book of coupons.

I remember playing cards until the wee hours in the morning. I may not remember what the heck we talked about but I do remember laughing a lot and not wanting to go to bed.

I remember having a fresh batch of Cottage Cheese and Onions waiting for me whenever I came over.

I remember asking “Why is tonight different from all other nights?”.

I remember Grandpa letting me drink milk even though we were eating meat.

I remember telling my friends that my Grandma and Grandpa had a cat that could say its name. WOW!

I remember going to the complex pool. We would go down the alley (always careful to watch out for the bees). I remember that when it was time to go I would hide my head under the water so I couldn't hear you tell me it was time to go home. And finally we'd go home where I'd nap or play in the living room.

I remember checking out the garage sales looking for neat stuff.

I remember picking up Aunt Sugar to take her to or from work in your little blue Volkswagen Beetle.

I remember always having a box of toys in the downstairs closet.

I remember asking you to wind up the singing birds in the living room.

Most importantly, I remember being loved unconditionally. I may not have appreciated or even understood what unconditional love but I do now. I carry it with me everywhere I go and appreciate it every day. I know that I'm very lucky to have grown up close to Grandparents who loved me so much. Thank you for all the memories and most importantly thank you for unconditional love. I know I'm a better man for it.

Mother:
Every day the memory of an "adventure" we shared crosses my mind and I find myself smiling. Oh boy, we had some really good times as a family and those are the memories that carry me forward. I wish I could hug you, Judy
