today is my maternal grandmother’s 15th death anniversary. I remember visiting her a couple months before she passed away. a shell of her former self ravaged by complications due to diabetes. I remember how my mom took the news of her death. vividly.
she did not have formal schooling and stopped going to school after finishing 2nd grade. she did have the determination and discernment to send all her kids to school. My mom and her siblings is a testament of that pursuit for education.
