EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2017
My grandmother, Mary Lou Fraysher, was a direct and blunt person. You knew what was on her mind because she said it. She had a love for playing the lottery, gambling, TV Soaps, and above all her family. She did everything in her power to make sure her family was happy and had what they wanted/needed. Even to the point it broke her. She was one of the best women I have ever known. My fondest memory is playing rummy with her until the wee hours of the morning. She passed years ago from lung cancer. She fought for 8 months but in the end she went home to a better place. She is forever in our memories. We will see her again one day. She'll shuffle the cards for another game of rummy.
Mom, Mary Ann Fraysher, is my guiding light. She's fed my sister and I the greatest cooking on the planet. She inspires our creative minds through art activities. She continues to teach us the power of God. She encourages us to do the right thing no matter the consequences. Last month she was diagnosed with cancer. Our whole family was shocked. Shes coming home to Charleston to be with her kids. As I am writing she is meeting with Doctors and working toward treatment options. She is a strong willed individual who has the power and determination to win this fight.
Thank you for reading, I will continue to give updates on Mary's success in her fight for her life.
