An Everlasting L❤️VE

Hello everyone.

My name is Chérie. 

I am the first born of the first born namesake of Phyllis 

And I am the first born grandchild of Phyllis and the late, great LeRoy 


I took a moment to look around the room. Recognize. 

I loved cooking with my grandma. She taught me her famous fried cabbage, red beans and rice, and an Egg-in-a-Nest. Oohs, aaahs, smiles and “YESSS!” affirmations filled the room.

I loved that she taught me how to bake grandpa’s favorite Pinapple Upside Down Cake 


And I love that she taught me Spanish.

Growing up, my grandma walked around the house talking to herself. “What did you say, Grandma?”, I would say. “Nothing. It’s just Spanish…” , she would say and continue talking to herself.

I wanted to know what she was saying! So, when I was in high school I decided to take a Spanish class. 

The first thing I wanted to learn how to say was hello to my grandma. Because she was my grandma! 

One day, I called her and surprised her. “¡Hola Mi Abuela!”  

(There was a gasp for air…) “¡HOLA MI NIETA BONITA! ¿COMÓ ESTÁ?!……”

And she was ‘off to the races’ they say.

“Woah, woah! Slow down grandma! I’m just learning!” , I said.

My grandma could not stop laughing. ( I could feel her smiling through the phone).

From that day, my grandma promised me to only speak Spanish to her.😄

We would never say goodbye. We would always end our conversations with  “I love you.”

So, the next thing I wanted to learn was how to say was ‘I love you ‘ to my grandma. Because she was my grandma.

As I choked back tears…¡TE AMO MUCHO MI ABUELA! ¡TE AMO MUCHO!

That was my speech when my grandmother passed. She turned 92 on May 23rd and she passed on the 30th.

🎵 Loving you 

Is some kind of wonderful 

Because you’ve shown me

Just how much you care

You’ve given me the thrill of a lifetime

And made me believe you’ve got more thrills to spare, oh
