When I wrote "Because Grandma Went to Heaven" I was grieving the loss of my beloved mother-the original Grandma in our family. This book had been swirling around in my brain for a while, and in one of those wide awake at 3am nights, the script finally came together.
My mother was a wonderful woman-not famous (she never had any desire to be!)-but everyone that knew her loved her. Some of the stories are hers. Some are my Grandmothers-some are me.
It is my hope that this book will be a comfort to anyone who has recently lost their best friend. I also hope that when I am gone, my grandchildren will find comfort. I hope that this book will encourage you to share your best memories with family, friends, and others experiencing heartbreak.
