There were three things that my grandma loved the most in her life. Her family, cards, and the yankees. And if she could get all three things in the same place, forget about it… she was one happy lady!! Family and traditions have always been something that was super important to my grandma. She strived to have everyone together whenever she could, whether it was for sunday dinners or for the holidays. Growing up, I always thought that was normal, but when I would bring friends over to my grandma's house and everyone was there, I soon learned that it wasn’t. A house full of love, family, support, stories and laughter was the only house that I ever wanted to be in, and that was the house you found at 81 mcgregor dr. I got to live with my grandma a few times, and those experiences ranged from being washed like a dish, being told i was going to sleep out on the porch and not being able to leave the table until i finished my portions of dinner; until grandma made them so small that there was nothing to eat.- Shout out to Regina for sitting with me all that time, then living with her again years later and coming home from student teaching to a beautiful dinner of chicken fingers and corn (grandma's favorite at the time) and countless games of may I. I wouldn’t have traded those experiences for anything in the world- even being washed in the sink like a dish! As I was sitting down to write this I opened up my computer and the first thing that popped up was a saying “ May good things find you, may good things hold you, may good things love you, may good things grow you.” and quite honestly, i don't think there were truer words ever spoken about the way my grandma Bella lived her life. She found the good things in life, she held on to them with all her might and loved those things with all of her soul and she let them help her grow into the amazing person she was. And not only that, she let that love grow the amazing family that I am so blessed to be a part of because of her. I know that I am so lucky to have had 30 amazingly wonderful years with this warrior of a woman as my grandmother. She has taught me that sometimes your willpower is all you need to get by. Your mental will is enough to get you through your hardest day. She taught me the power of love and family and tradition, and how at the end of the day those are the things that really matter and what should matter. So gram, I am going to make 3 promises to you… 1. To love as hard and fiercely as you did every day 2. To carry on the traditions of our family and 3.to always play a game of may i and have a yankee game on Oh yea and To keep my room clean, because who is going to call me on saturdays to ask if i am cleaning my room? I love you, and I hope you are playing the biggest card game ever! Love, Krysta
