|My amazing grandmother|
As a young girl I recognized and appreciated her spirit of adventure and independence. She knew how to live in the moment and create her home wherever she lived. Through her I learned to create a feeling of home anywhere I set my shoes.
My great-aunt Molly wrote the following poem honoring her older sister, my grandmother.
We drove to the marina and parked
On a strange, a dream like day.
The sky was a breath-taking blue,
And a light breeze rippled the bay.
Such beauty pierces the heart,
And we had nothing to say -
For Loretta loved the song of the sea,
And Loretta died today.
