  •  My grandmother (5+ / 0-)

    She became of age a year after women earned the right to vote.  

    My father was absent, my mother was present but vacant and did not like me as I strongly resembled my dad.  My dad's mother took me under her wing and it was a good thing.  A few years ago I found some of her writings from the '40's and '50's.  She was very progressive and pro women's rights.  I miss her so much.  (remind me to photocopy and scan the documents she wrote before they fall apart)

    Both of my parents are dead now also but I miss my good friend, confidant, and grandma so much that I would wish to talk to her more than anyone else.
