As we move closer towards March 3rd, I feel excitement and gratitude towards my opportunity to celebrate my 16th birthday with so many important people in my life. In spite of that, it is impossible to overlook that one very special person in my life will be missing. This past November, my grandmother, Collie Mae Isom, my dad's mom, passed away. In honor of her, I ask that, in lieu of gifts, you contribute to a Go Fund Me page that we’ve created, where all donations will be given to Calvary Hospital, as a thank you for their attentive and loving care of my grandma in the final weeks of her life. And while she is not physically with us, her smile, her laugh, and her gentle kindness will forver live in our hearts.
