The following blog post was written by Lauren Elizabeth Hartman (our 3rd child, who will celebrate her 29th birthday on May 14th!). As you will notice, her blog was written 5 1/2 years ago. It was written specifically about her Granny "Dot" (Ron's Mom, and my Mother-in-law).
Granny "Dot" passed away March 17, 2016 at the age of 94. She is greatly missed, and is/and will be remembered in our daily conversations.
What a legacy she left!
It will take a multitude of blogs to pay proper tribute to this lady. She loved me unconditionally from the moment Ron introduced me to her, 49 years ago. She never met a stranger, went out of her way to help others, and loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
We spent our first Mother's Day without Dot last Sunday. It was an EMOTIONAL experience. We went to the cemetery to place a flower on her grave. Moments of silence and grief took over..... as they will continue to do so for a long time.
Be Kind. Be Generous. Let people know that you appreciate them.
Thanks Lauren, for allowing me to share this!
Enjoy her blog:
