AUTHENTIC

They called her Grandma Sugar because she always said, “Give me some sugar.” She was a softie when it came to grandchildren. Otherwise, she was tough as a boot.

She let my son stay up late to watch Johnny Carson show. It made him feel very important. She inspired my children's creativity and Grandma Sugar taught my daughter her “in-your-face” stride of confidence.

Authentic is the best word I can think of to describe my former mother-in-law. She taught us all so very much because she had learned so very much in her lifetime.

Yesterday she left the strange land of confusion she has been living in and is at peace.
