My awesome grandma, Eleanor Koukol, who was 97, died about a week and a half ago. She was such a sweet, loving, strong, funny, and ornery lady. I read her eulogy at her funeral, and I think it was one of the most satisfying things I've ever done. It made most everything I've ever done before seem so selfish, because I had never honored someone in that way or ever given anyone a gift like I did that day.

I took this photo of her my senior year of highschool.

I loved Eleanor when I knew her. I always loved your relationship with her and I knew she had so much to do with what a wonderful person you are! This was such a beautiful post, for such a beautiful lady. I will never forget her, nor you for as long as I live.
