My grandmother's been dead for a year and two months, and my mom just found one of those fill-in memoir books in her closet that my grandmother had started writing in and had dedicated to me, her first grandchild. In it is facts and details about her childhood and adolescence, and upon looking through it one tidbit that made me emotional was her writing that when my mom was born, my great-grandpa brought my grandma a dozen red roses at the hospital and she said that to that day, years later as she was writing that down, no one had ever brought her a dozen red roses again. I desperately wish she had mentioned that to me at some point while she was alive. I would have happily brought her some on our last Mother's Day together, or when I came to visit her while she was sick and dying. Now all I can do is bring twelve red roses to her grave, and that is what I plan to do on her birthday this year.

 

i miss you, Libby
