Esther Tamara Rukasin Annis
Born February 19, 1923
Died December 5, 2013
A smart, thoughtful, interested and interesting woman.
A loving grandmother and mother and aunt.
She is wallowing in chocolate, Hershey's kisses on the side,
watching Christina-Taylor jump in mud puddles.
Listen in to the conversation:
"You're getting filthy, sweetheart!"
"Come, have some chocolate.... take more... don't be stingy with yourself."
Peacefully,in her sleep, surrounded by her memories and supported by Hospice and staff and family,
she left this world and is now reunited with the woman she used to be.
Sad but not tragic, her loss leaves a void to be filled with good books, loving children, and more photographs than any family should ever collect in ten lifetimes.
She will be missed and remembered.
I'm taking a funeral hiatus for the next few days.
The Burrow will feature a series of G'ma related posts.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed living them.
