Every where I turned I was reminded of her,
the food she loved,
the way she sounded,
strolling down Folly Beach, perusing through the Market, gazing around the Battery...
She loved this place and longed for it like no other.
Although she lived most of her adult life in the Upstate, her heart remained here, her childhood home.
She would tell stories of her beautiful city, the place she loved, and her heart would smile.
Oh Charleston, you are loved and will always be special to me,
because you captured my grandmother's heart.
