05 Song That Reminds Me of Someone

Grandma Helen

One of the most important people in my life was my great-grandmother, Helen Hutcherson. She lived to be 102 years old. Grandma was the sweetest person I have ever known. She enjoyed solving puzzles and spending time with her family. If you sat beside her on the sofa she would rub your hand and talk, making you feel like the most important person in the world. Although our family is big and spans nearly every corner of the country, we all made our way to West Virginia at some point during the year to see her. Words cannot say enough about her kindness, wisdom and love. This was her favorite song. Every time I hear it I think about her. ❤
