Relaxing on this Sunday morning, the memories of Grandma Rose are flooding in.

Visiting her & Grandpa at "the farm" -- complete with chickens, rabbits, a huge garden, and a laryngitic neighbor dog they called Miller. On hot summer visits, swimming at the water hole, gathering enough courage to swing and drop into the cold water from the thick rope tethered to the tree. And then getting back in time for Grandma to feed us.

Grandma bustling around the kitchen, either preparing tea and sweets ... or one of her magical meals.

Grandma's distinctive voice and laugh.

Her many crafts -- from quilts to sock monkeys and rag dolls.

Her wonderful care of Grandpa when he was sick ... until he finally passed. I feel blessed to have the quilt she hand-stitched during those days, weeks and months of his illness.

The stories Pat brought back after he and his 2 buddies rode their bikes to the farm, appreciating the warm welcome, good food, and soft beds they were given after biking and camping 100 miles to get there.

The family vacation we took to Timmins, Canada when I was young. Mom and Bob loading up the station wagon with 5 kids to visit Grandma & Grandpa at the lake-front property they had bought up there. The A-frame house Grandpa was building. Picking wild blueberries with Grandma's sisters Chi and Wanda. Swimming in the lake, Bonnie and I befriending two other little girls that were swimming nearby. I laugh because I remember not understanding a word they said -- they spoke French -- but we played together anyway.

Kevin's son Reece interviewing Grandma about her life for a school project.

Visiting Grandma Rose in Fraser whenever I came back to visit Michigan. I remember some visits were just with Mom and Grandma Rose, other visits had an entourage -- Colleen and her boys; or Michelle and her kids; or Bonnie and Christopher. Or any combination of them. One particularly memorable visit was lunch at a nearby restaurant (it might have been a Big Boy's) with Grandma, Mom, Aunt Donna, Eileen and her 3 kids, Colleen and her 2 boys, and Michelle with Van. Such a noisy, fun time. I need to find that picture.

Her yard always had flowers -- I remember geraniums, especially around her porch. Her house was always comfortable, clean and well-cared for.

Her 100th birthday celebration -- what a special gathering. There was Grandma, alert, oriented and spry as ever at age 100. She seemed awed yet pleased that people would come to celebrate her life. And how fun it was visiting with Kim, Rick and Chris and meeting their spouses and kids. Such a great group of friends and family at that gathering.

Hearing Mom say "I talked with Grandma Rose the other day ..." and then hearing the latest news about Grandma. Step-by-step details of how she scared away a burglar, and how amazed the police were at her clear thinking and observations -- she was over 100 and still living on her own, still going up and down the basement stairs to do her laundry. About her regular senior bus trips to the stores. About how she was too busy to chat with the Mayor because her bus was waiting. About her friends at the grocery store who helped her ... and who she treated to hugs. About how she and her friend across the street devised a "daily check" on each other with their window shades. About her gardening and sewing ... and how little by little she had to stop both because her eyesight became too poor. About how nice it was that Aunt Lorraine lived so close by, checking in and ready to help when needed.

How Grandma loved her independence and doing things her way.

How she was pragmatic, giving up her car and keys when it was time to stop driving herself ... and leave the driving to others.

As I make my way back to Michigan for this rare opportunity to spend the summer where I grew up, I'm sad I won't be able to visit Grandma Rose again. To go to her favorite Mexican restaurant where everybody seemed to know her name; to hear her voice and her laugh, a little crackly with age but still distinctive; to listen to her story ... because her life was a fascinating adventure.

Again ... RIP, Grandma Rose. I'll miss you.

And I know Mom will miss you too. She loved her visits with you when she was in Michigan and she loved your phone chats when she wasn't. You made her laugh and provided her with good stories to share.

Some of my favorite memories were visiting Grandpa and Grandma Rose at their farm in Homer, Michigan. One Thanksgiving the whole family gathered — Aunt Lorraine and her brood of 3, Mom (Maureen Kopach) and her 5 kids, and Uncle Mike with his 4 rugrats.

It was always fun re-acquainting with our cousins Kim, Ricky, and Christopher since we didn’t see them very often.

The food was outstanding as always, a lot of it straight from their massive garden. Grandma was an amazing cook — you never left their house without a full belly.

I always love hearing the story about how Mom and her best friend Lorraine introduced Grandma Rose and Grandpa. How their first date went so well … and how they teased the girls by saying it didn’t. How when Grandma and Grandpa married in the 1970s, the girls went from best friends to sisters. Mom loved Grandma Rose like a mother.

Another of my favorite memories was making the trip from Arizona to Michigan to help Grandma celebrate her 100th birthday. Living to 100 was amazing — but making it to 107 years old … and only recently having to move out of her house to live with Aunt Lorraine — now that’s inspiring!

RIP, Grandma. You lived a great life!
