This is my mom.
Her name is Annie.
But we call her “Grammie” (and my kid’s friends call her “Auntie Grammie”. . . because it’s awesome. . . and because I make them).
She’s brave. She’s generous. She’s kind. She’s FULLLLLL of joy and light and perfect empathy and unconditional love. In complete sincerity, she’s unlike anyone you’ve ever known. These aren’t simply sweet birthday words from a loving daughter. Truly, ask anyone who knows her. She’s exceptional. Completely and totally so.
We love you, Grammie!
Alllllllll of us
