In Loving Memory of Lena Mae Dargan {my Granny}

Lena Mae Dargan
June 6, 1937 - August 14, 2015

On Friday, August 14, 2015 my family gained an angelic soul. I can't make this a sappy-sad post because my Grandmother was not that...she was quite the opposite. Her name is Lena Mae Dargan {my Granny!:)}

"You got to know that you know that you know" - Lena Mae Dargan

My mother is the inspiration behind TFC, but I guess ultimately the credit goes to Granny! She taught her girls about being a woman and my mother taught hers...that lady was true wisdom.  She faced her share of adversity, but always remained a classy lady - our family example.

I know how to get exactly what I want (never doubted) thanks to you Granny, because I know that I  know, I know.  And people will judge, but they just don't know.

She also use to say: "You shouldn't have to tell someone you are a Christian, they should see it in you."

Though I'm not religious, I follow the pattern of agreeable as close as I can, but you know- he who is without sin can cast the first stone. Live your life how you please, and let others do the same. We are all a voice for each other (good or bad- which is a perspective to me).

I tear up thinking about this beautiful lady, but then I continue to remind myself of her strength in me. I know how to make history my way, because my family did it back home in Anchorage, AK (though all my grands are from the south)...everyone has an interesting story. 

My Grandfather said you have to make your own name. 

...true meaning of no pain no gainI have some shoes to fill. 

you will live on Granny-we LOVE you!
