Your tribute to Grandma Nellie defines your loving sentiments. I had one such a giving and gentle grandmother. The other was never pleased with me no matter how hard I tried.

Hi Mike…at first I thought you were writing about your mum and I got real nervous as I know how close you are and how much she means to you.Really sad to see you lost your grandma who obviously from your poem was so very loved and special. Is she your mums mum? I love her name also Nellie! I’m so sorry for your loss Mike….I bet Nellie loved you to pieces! Debx

What a fond remembrance of your grand mother.....! The connection between a grand mother and a grand child is so precious ! With how much of concern she has cooked the best goodies for you. A grandma's love and sacrifice are nonpareil!

Aw, such a beautiful tribute to your grandmother. My grandmother shepherded me along the way, too, Mike. They didn't make them any better back then than ours. Well-written, delightful poem.
