    Carol Tryon, my Grandmother

    Carol Tryon was a wonderful Grandma. She inspired me every single time I was with her. From the way she would wear her hats and decorate her dinner table, the way she loved my Grandpa and took his dry humour, from the way she painted and showed her artwork in galleries, and to the way she survived through the loss of her son and husbands. She taught me lessons in how to cope with the daily trials of life as well as life’s big challenges. She was there for me during big moments in my life and supported me 100 per cent. She may not have agreed with my choices but she never tried to convince me to do things her way and respected me as an adult and as an individual. I feel her loss so deeply. I know that she would not want me to weep and that she would tell me she lives on in God’s love. Grandma cared about people and loved her family. She had firm friends and she loved life. I loved talking to her, whether it was about her childhood, her furniture or place settings, about religion or advice on who to trust and how to deal with life. I think Grandma was a remarkable person and the lessons she taught me will live in my heart every day. I miss her but I cherish the fact that I had such a wonderful, beautiful, talented and intelligent and loving Grandma.

    I am filled with sorrow that I cannot make it there for her memorial service. I know how lucky I am to have had such an amazing grandmother.
