This is My GrandMama....My Heart... then, now...always & forever. She put herself through Medical School to become an emergency room LPN then RN while she was a Divorced Single Mother in the 30's. Willing to try new and exciting things, teaching her Family not to be afraid to do the same. Always dressing for the style of the times with grace, class and sometimes controversy. She was there to care for others when they were unable to care for themselves. No expressions of self pity for her hardships, and frowned on others doing. She was a Force....with respect.
