Maya Angelou once said, “People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.” That’s what made Eloise – our Granny Eller – such an indelible force in our lives. She taught us so many life lessons, most notably how to love fiercely and unconditionally, but what brings the tears to our eyes is remembering the immense joy we felt in her presence, how when we were with her – even us rambunctious rascals – she made us feel like we were the most important person and priority in that moment. And even though she was a larger-than-life personality, she never made you feel small; she had a unique way of making you feel welcome, it was almost as if we were her peers, and she was our playmate.
