    I remember visiting my Grandma Dorothy when we were kids. I remember flying down to Beaumont with my sister in a plane by ourselves and it was so scary! I remember going to the movie rental store and renting movies like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movies. I remember when we went rollerskating and I fell and broke my wrist! I remember the time we were all there at her house and she looked over at Brian, my younger brother, and said, (paraphrasing) "Are you getting ready for a flood?" Because his pants were too short. We laughed, and I still laugh when I remember that. I can still visualize her house, and I remember her little wiener dogs; Ruby and Lucy. I hate that I can't be there tomorrow and Thursday for her and my family, but I know she would have understood. I loved her, and I will miss her. Bye grandma.
