Many in the family
knew her as Auntie
while I and my siblings
plus first cousins
called her Grandma

Strength of character
aplomb of my hero

encourager of creativity
with an apron for noses

Named for a steamship line
younger years strewn
with flappers dreams
doughnut delivery
a certain mailman

I started this piece as a pen and ink drawing, then painted it in in Photoshop.
