Grandma, as she preferred to be known to everyone, was 88 when she crossed over on the night of May 1, 2008. She spent 35 years teaching English in the Baltimore City Public Schools and at Johns Hopkins University, where she has an M.A. She did a lot of the packing and sorting as well as checking my grammar from back in her “corner” in the shop.
