~Remembering Greta Benn~

My grandmother passed away early on February 23rd.  My dad’ mother.  She was born in Keswick, England and came to America with her family as a young child.  My grandmother was proper.  Quiet, calm, and strong. We spent every summer in Florida visiting both sets of grandparents.  One day she and I went to the beach and I was swimming in the ocean. She was standing on the shore.  As I was trying to coming in I got caught in a rip-tide.  I was beginning to panic and get tired because I could not make it to shore,  I was so close but I could not get out, it kept pulling me back under.  My grandma somehow managed to reach in and pull me from the stronghold of the sea. I dried myself off and we went back home.  This is how I will remember my grandmother. Strong.  Godspeed Greta.
