Grandma Colclasure

My favorite grandma. 

I spent the weekend in Washington, celebrating her life. She fought a battle with Alzheimers for many years. Here are some of my favorite memories of my grandma's house 

...showing up at grandma's house and her having homemade raviolis or noodle soup for us to eat, like it had been a long journey (2 hours) 
...matching pajamas from grandma with all the cousins on christmas eve
...rides with grandma and grandpa in the country to see the donkeys, pete and repeat :) 
...riding the banana peeler bike at grandma's in the summer to the post office and candy shop (coolest bike ever)
...easter egg hunts in the front yard and woods by her house 
...the best cookies in her cookie jar (worked at the town bakery)
...her sweet, loving, generous, giving attitude. She gave what she had. She had a kind word always. She was the best grandma. 

We miss you grandma.

Beautifully written sister! I am so thankful for all of those wonderful memories. The other memories that I have are how she STOCKED the cereal cabinet before we got there...we always teased that she had more cereal than Safeway and riding on the airplane with her and going to Disneyland for her first time. She was the BEST grandma ever! I miss you grandma.
