Here is an article from the fall magazine of the National Farmers Union. It is about my beloved grandmother Violet. She is photographed here in a wheel chair not too long before she died, as I will always remember her, fighting for the farms and the land.
She would frequently write to the news paper and at the end of her letters say: “people are important”. I know that she was important, and how fortunate I was to have won the grandma draw. She remains a strong figure and presence in my daily life. I miss the touch of her hand and her support.
