My grandmother, is a strong woman. She has had multiple strokes and yet you can see her strong will to live.
I was still young when she had her first stroke, half her body was paralyzed but that did not deter her. She went on to take care of her family, and showed us all how to live despite adversities. She was confined to her body but was free.
And in the last few years she was bound to this wheel chair, finding it harder to speak and move but her eyes were as lively and impish as ever. She'd be the first to ask if you've already eaten or how my parents, brothers and nephews are.
She was confined to her body but was free.
This is for you Lola. We love you.
