Abstract

This poem was originally a poem created for a dedication book given to my grandmother on her 90th birthday. After several revisions, and a few white lies, (poems are always better when you lie), I hope I’ve created a worthy homage to Grandma Jane and the lovely memories she created with her vision of family.
