This morning I woke up to the news that my grandmother, Audrey Alleyne (she went by Alleyne) passed away last night. It’s sad news but I wasn’t too surprised. Her health has been declining for many years as she battled with dementia.
I prefer not to remember her how she was at the end. I want to remember her as she was when I was a child: always full of laughter, generous and fun. Dementia took that away from her and made her confused and scared.
My only regret is that I didn’t learn to crochet from her when she still remembered how. I still have one of her crocheted blankets.
Hug your loved ones tight tonight!
