I was lucky enough to know all four of my grandparents and three of my great-grandparents! It’s kind of wonderful, really. Many people don’t have that privilege.
My great-grandmother, Guiney, would have turned 101 today! She was an incredible lady- a painter, a world traveler, a writer, a college grad, a musician, and so many other things. She was ridiculously accomplished and everyone adored her.
She passed away on the first day of June in 2007 and Forrest and I got married in her garden almost exactly one year after her death. I am so glad that Forrest was able to know Guiney before she left us!
It’s hard for me to be sad when I think of Guiney. All I can think is that I am so grateful to have known her and to have had her in my life!
Happy birthday, Guiney!
