My memory of Lavina was my husband introducing me to her. He introduced her as this is my grandma and that was it, I never asked any other questions and never thought to ask what her name was. So it may have been about a year that passed and I still had no idea what her name was because I automatically just started calling her grandma. Until one day we were doing a guest list for a party or something like that and I realized then that I had no idea what her name really was. She will always be grandma to me, I loved her to pieces and she will be dearly missed. RIP grandma.
