¸.❀⁀⋱‿ 1950-2006 An Honorable Passing…

She had dark skin and long curly hair, she carried the family trait, big wide curious eyes… her favorite ice cream was butter pecan and she loved those orange candy slices with those soft square mints… her favorite song was bridge over trouble water and was a Knicks fan, she loved animals an would let us bring home strays… She would give them the best names too lol, Mr Tibbs, tough e nough, Flossy, Flauntleroy etc…. Her happiest times was spent in the big farm house she bought on Long Island where she had a Pantry that she was so proud of…stocking it with jams and pickles, she planted greens and other vegetables in the garden and there was fruit trees and even a walnut tree lol… she would collect country living mags and I still have some of them today we did yard sales and flea markets… I take her passing every year this night very hard… I miss her… I’m so much like her and I bet she didn’t know how much I watched her… today I make apple sauce and stock my pantry. I wonder if my children watch…Her laugh lives in me… as well as her tears… on this night 6/9/06 we shared our last smiles… tears… and unspoken promises… on this night she gave me a thumbs up to show me she was proud of me getting into the Department of Corrections… on this night I fell asleep by her bed side and woke to her stroking my hand… She was dying but she was comforting me!… On this night I thanked her for everything shed done for us… On this night God granted me the opportunity to say good bye for now…. On this night at 12:30am Dorothea Russell Grieb departed…Honorably…
