A couple of weeks ago John's grandma turned 100 years old! All of us who have been blessed to be loved by her gathered to celebrate her amazing life. One hundred years is a long time, and I can honestly say that John's grandma (we all call her "GG", which stands for "Great Grandma") has made the most of them. She has touched so many people throughout her lifetime.

I think a lot about what I will be remembered for. When I think about GG, I think about her card playing skills, all the loaves of fresh-baked bread she baked, clipping coupons, handmade sweaters, hats, and scarves, and the world's best pasta salad. She taught us about the importance of putting family first. Everything she does revolves around her family. That's the best legacy of all, isn't it?
