My grandma was one of my best friends. She was the one who would sneak me some extra money if I really needed it in college. The one who would “plait” my hair, and pull my french braids so tight that my head literally ached. The one who would make homemade green-applesauce with extra cinnamon just for me, and make sure to keep a stash of Cadbury Creme Eggs in the freezer year-round. She was the one who would snuggle me in close during long church services, and whose voice I still remember on our last phone call together.
There’s no other love like a grandparent’s love, and Sean’s Grandma Mimi was extra proud of her grandson on his wedding day this weekend.
