Gram's Piano


My grandmother sang in the choir of her little Baptist church for decades.  She sang alto, like me.  Rather, I sing alto like her.

I learned to sing standing beside this piano as she played Shirley Temple songs.  I can still sing parts of "Good Ship Lollypop" and "Animal Crackers in My Soup."

I miss my grandmother, maybe more so now that I sing alto in the choir of my own little Baptist church.  Her piano sits in my living room where I pick out harmonies as I practice.

She left me a piano, a legacy of music, and a legacy of faith.  I think she'd be grateful that I appreciate it, and I know I'm grateful for all she took the time to pass on.

  1. And you will pass that legacy on to your children. Music is such a lovely legacy to leave.

  2. I recently inherited my Gram's dining room table - a place where she ingrained in me a legacy of hospitality and family. I understand your gratitude!
