Phil's grandma passed away on Valentine's Day. She was a big part of his life, and a source of unfaltering support. She was proud of everything he did, even when he chose a career that meant he'd be living on the other side of the world. She was a strong, protective matriarch. She spoke her mind, and stuck to her guns. She wrote lovely cards in pretty cursive script. She crocheted drawers full of beautiful baby blankets, and regularly reminded us about them. She cried from excitement when she saw the photo of her great-grandchild with Obama. She worked hard to keep her family together. They were truly her pride and joy.
We're thankful for everything Grandma Allie did for us.
Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη.
