She was a teenager during the depression when she left home and became a live-in housecleaner/cook.
She married young and had four children.
She owned an apple orchard.
She went south with us during the Winter months in our rainbow colored bus.
She took me in when my boy and I needed a refuge.
She stayed up all night with me, swapping stories.
She held my babies and gave me helpful tips.
She cupped their faces in her hands and told them each how she loved them.
And last week she told me goodbye.
We hugged and promised, "I'll see you later."
 Gram was prepared
