Encapsulate someone’s entire life..

The prompt for Vermilion’s 10th Flash Issue was to write a piece that encapsulated someone’s entire life. “My grandmother was an orphan” includes many of the important events in the life of my paternal grandmother, Betty Agnes Leary White, but her warmth, generosity, and easy going attitude will have to be a subject for another poem. Sadly, I learned more about her following her death than during her life.
