100WW — Missing Grammie

49BB67F8-AB41-4220-B2FE-5539E89B4F7A“I miss her,” Anna said. “This garden room was Grammie’s favorite place to sit and read.”

“This brings back so many memories,” Barbara added. “I’d come to her with a problem and she’d tell me, in her soothing, euphonious voice, to let it percolate for a while and a solution would soon reveal itself to me. It was almost baffling to me how right she always was.”

“It was quite an achievement that she lived as long as she did after having had her defective heart valve replaced with a bovine valve,” Anna added.

“She will be missed,” Barbara said.

    Nicely done. We often don’t realize how much someone will be missed after they’ve gone. Grammie sounds like a very special person.

    Thanks for signing up for the April A to Z Challenge.

    I was wondering how you were going to fit bovine in such a poignant tale 😉

      Thanks. I hope it didn’t come across too contrived.
