My grandmother's gone
She's lost to this world
Her body a vessel, left as a shell.
Now it is ash in the earth.
We miss her sparkling Love and JOY!
Her sense that all things are choice and decency is the good and right choice.
Making dirty jokes at the age of 90, she loved to laugh, smile, and dance.
Her young life, filled with high adventure.
Born in the Tropics beneath a South American Sun. A move when she was young. Amsterdam here she comes. The Hitler took control and the Family got out on the last boat out of harbor before the death took hold.
A New york arrival. South American childhood, Dutch education, American life.
For those begot by this great woman, whom the world is poorer to have past, we all miss you dearly.
All of our lives have been touched by your sense of right, choice, and truth.
My Nana, Edith Celine Fernanadez Steinitz has passed from this plain will indeed be missed.
I love poetry.
