I like how soft your coloring looks!
The cover more or less reads: "Dear Grandma."
The main message inside reads: "I will always be your teacher. I miss you, Grandma."
The speech bubble itself reads: "This is a 'Cookie,' Grandma!"
I was finally inspired to draw her something as a gift when I went to visit her at the hospice she had been staying at the weekend before Sept. 1st, only for her to die the next day before I ever got the chance to finish it, let alone go visit her again, as I had to stay home that day to catch up on reading for a quiz for school.
Really crappy circumstances, that.
In any case...I drew up this card because of this one memory of me my grandma was so fond of reminding me and everyone else of. When I was little, around kindergarten age, I would eagerly attempt to teach my grandma English words--having learned English myself because of school, and having a grandma who could only speak Spanish.
I would point out things, like tables, chairs, furniture, food, and tell them what they were called in English. She'd call me her little teacher because of it. My grandma would say that of all the words I attempted to teach her, the one word that stuck was "cookie." She was so proud of that, that she learned how to say "cookie" and always remembered it.
So...I decided to draw her a card based on that memory, and tucked it in with her when we went to see her today for the Rosary thing that was held.
So...yeah. Rest in Peace, Abuelita.
