I've not been keeping up with my photos... And I'm
not sure which ones I've sent and which I haven't.

(My grandmother died about 3 years later. She was a lovely lady. She didn't always get her wig on straight, but she'd suggest we go down to the lobby sometimes for our visits instead of just staying in her room. She was so happy to show off her great-grandbabies to the other residents of the facility where she was. We always attracted quite a crowd.)
Hope everyone is doing well!
