My Grams is one of the most selfless persons I know. When her uncle was sick, she volunteered to care for him for the rest of his short life. He died five years later in 2001. When my mother became ill from cancer, she took us both in and cared for us, even though she was caring for her terminally ill husband. I was only 12 at the time. My mother was happy and well taken care of for 2 years, but unfortunately the cancer was too much for her to handle, and she also died a short time later. My Grams husband passed in the next year. Which left me, 15 and troubled. I can't remember her ever not being supportive of me. She pushed me, and helped me realize my potential. I have everything I could want because of her. Even through all the hard times and sorrow, she somehow has found a way to stay positive and supportive. I can never repay her for what she has done for me and our family, but small tokens of recognition like this will surely bring a smile to her face.
