You taught me to love words, and the joy that comes from putting them together. I know that reading "Hurry Up, Slowpoke" again and again and again must have tested your patience, but it helped me learn to enjoy the journey of discovery that can take place between the covers of a good book. Your life showed that teaching is more than a vocation, and learning doesn't have to be a chore. I love you, Gram, and I already miss you.
