Grandma and her family, the Thompsons & the Becks, were members of the Church of Christ Church. The nicest group of Christians, you could ever hope to meet. I went to church with grandma, in Enumclaw, every time I visited her, and always had wonderful fellowship with them. Her church was always, very central to her life. She taught children's Sunday school there for many years.
She really gave us such good memories, and always left the welcome mat out, for all of us.
Funny thing, I still wear that blouse, here in Hawaii, even if it is 30 some years old.
Grandma lived a life, full of adventure, tho not intentionally, nor always of her own making. She always had a smile, and a welcome, and tho she had, more than her share of sorrow, her simple faith in God, saw her through it all.
In future posts, I will try and share some of her stories, for she had wit and charm, and a natural gift for story telling.
