My Grandma GG passed away on January 31, 2013. She was in the late stages of Alzheimer's, so her mind had pretty much gone by then. I didn't know her super well since she lived in Kenosha, Wisconsin and I grew up on the East Coast. But I'll always remember how jolly and hospitable she was. One time in college Sara and I took a road trip to Wisconsin and stayed with Grandma for a couple days. Even though it was just the two of us she made enough meatballs for more like 10 people. She was always willing to help people out when they needed it. During World War II she worked at a factory building airplanes. Because she was little she had to crawl into the tight spaces to screw things down. Whenever we would come to visit she would pull out the newspaper clipping with a picture of her sitting in a cockpit and she would tell us how she was Rosy the Riveter.
I flew to Wisconsin on Super Bowl Sunday to be with my family and celebrate Grandma GG's life. I'm in the process of video recording something in my life everyday, so I had a few clips that I put together in a video about the Funeral and seeing family. I edited this together for Vimeo's Weekend Challenge, which was to use only clips that are one second long. I'm not the greatest about actually editing footage together that I've shot, so I thought this was a good opportunity to share my experiences of those few days in Wisconsin saying goodbye to Grandma GG.
