in her later years, grandma would often share about how she started a new life after the passing of her husband. one of her nephews asked her if she was just going to sit and hold her hands. she told him no. he put her in contact with someone so that she could start providing for elderly in rural jackson county. with her residency at the cape, she was able to cover a wide territory that had not been before. she was always so proud that she was able to work and sustain herself. she had a new life to live. and she lived it happily. her spirit carries through in all of us...her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and friends.
