My grandmother, Diane, is the strongest and most beautiful woman to ever walk the face of the Earth. Everyone in the family referred to her as Maw Diane; she was a beautiful lady inside and out, and never had an enemy. On October 23rd, her 55th birthday, my grandmother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. In just 4 weeks, the cancer had spread to her liver, brain, and lungs. By week 6 she passed away.
She never shed a tear of front of anyone in the family, other than my mom. She always reassured me that she would be okay because she was going to be with God, and told me to have faith and be strong. In the short decade I had with my grandma, she taught me more about myself than anyone I have ever met. She told me that to be pretty on the outside, I must first be pretty on the inside.
