Granny has passed over to a better place. The last time I saw her she gave me this stuff, cards, cards and more cards from everyone. Little notes in books with messages to me and you. I will scan and put them up as I find them. Today, this Memorial Day, I feel her presense as I read these messages, look at these photos and remember her, I hope you will remember what an amazing lady she was. Marie Irene Bennett was always kind, thoughtful, caring and generous. She is missed terribly by her family and friends.
"Good morning Granny
Thank goodness for Kim. I am late as usual in wishing you happy birthday. Fortunately you always forgave me so I know you will forgive me this time too. My heart is so sore. I regret the many times I could have visited but didn't, now I can't. I thank you for my amazing family! Your influence and lessons of love are ingrained. Even though we are all so far away from each other your glue binds us together. As we remember each other and reach out and help each other in these tough times I wonder how many of us realize that this closeness is due to Granny's Glue. I love and miss you."
"Happy Birthday Mom, Gran and Big Gran.
Always in our thoughts and hearts, missed and very loved.
Errol, Belinda, Melony, Candice and Atalanta xxx"
"Happy Birthday Gran
You meant so much to so many - gave of yourself to help others and take care of anyone needing it. You left so many memories Gran and a wonderful legacy. We miss the blue sweet jar, the plates piled high and your never ending wish to see us all as often as you could. I though you would live forever and miss you so much Gran.
I am sure you are having a birthday celebration and telling everyone you are 101.
