Birthday remembrances

Today would have been my grandmother's 109th birthday. She died in 1977, confined to a wheelchair and all but unable to speak though her mind was still sharp and alert. In many ways she provided my brother and I with the mothering her daughter couldn't as the demands of earning a living and a marriage that needed constant work to keep it together militated against her.

Hector Mary Heron was a woman of great faith and tremendous patience. She never once complained as her disablities increased and the love she gave my brother and I, her husband and her family, was without limit. May she rest in peace.
