Farewell, Beryl

I miss Grandma’s smile and her trademark greeting: “You look so good!” You might not have looked your best, but she meant it. Grandma was happy to see you because she genuinely enjoyed the company. Grandma was always up for adventure. She looked forward to her great grand daughter Kate’s birthday parties, musicals, and school promotions. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to make it to Kate’s high school graduation but she attended a musical during Kate’s senior year. From my childhood birthday dinners to Pam’s bridal shower to Kate’s first birthday to Kate’s last year of high school, Grandma was always there. She made every event better with her enthusiasm and cheerful, engaging conversation.  When served food or a glass of wine , she would always declare: “This is so good!” Thank you Carole, Dad, and Caryl Anne for making sure GG was part of Kate’s life. In keeping with Grandma’s generation, she was also a tireless worker. She did everything she could to help win the Second World War. Sh
