The Ebb And Flow.
After a long stay in a home and after strokes and Alzheimer's, my father's mum died yesterday morning. Her name was Marjorie Sweet. She was 98 and both her body and mind were just tired out. We're going down to the Annapolis Valley tomorrow to bury her next to my grandfather. She was a schoolteacher in Nova Scotia and raised my Dad and my Uncle Lowell after her husband died in 1954. Grammy came to PEI to live with us for many winters since she lived alone in a big farm house in Billtown, NS. She had many strange little idiosyncrasies, but she was a cool independent lady who had a big vegetable garden in back of her house was always interested in our studies. I could go on at length about Grammy, but I'll leave it at that.
