On the right of her sister and brother is my beautiful grandma lucy. being 1/12 kids she lost her parents at a young age and moved in with her other sister. My grandpa was married to someoneelse towards the end of their marriage and never paid child support. My Grandma, my dad, my uncle and aunt were forced to move from town to town, shitty apartment to roach infested apartment all throughout my dads childhood with nothing in their fridge but pasta and bologna. she worked a ton of jobs to support her family and raised three successful children, she worked diligently throughout her entire life until the day of her retirement when she ironically passed away. by the time i was born she was able to spoil me rotten, i was the her first grand daughter, and she was my best friend throughout my childhood. My dad remembers people whistling at her while they walked through queens and even in her 60s she still had the same effect on men. she never remarried, she never needed to remarry she was always strong and independent. She’s the most beautiful person i’ve ever met, inside and out. I’ll always remember her in the kitchen with a cup of coffee and cigarettes, playing cards, cursing and laughing. i miss you gma.
