    So sorry for your loss Shelli. It sounds like she was a truly wonderful woman,
    whose memory you will always keep with you. Great that you can carry on her adventurous legacy. Take Care, and wonderful to have spent some time at the conference together.

    I know how you feel, Shell. We finished cleaning out the storage unit today. I wrapped her everyday dishes to give to Salvation Army and cried all the way home. It’s the little things that happen that bring about a memory. I am so happy that so much of her goes on in you. I think she is sitting right beside you in every class you take. Probably telling the teacher additional info. on the subject. You know Grandma.
    Keep learning. I love you Aunt Jo
