Helen Irene O'Hair McCrary

I don't know if I've mentioned this on here before, 
but I am named after my two grandmothers.  
My father's mother, Eva Lena, was where my first name came from.  My parents chose to name me after her because she died 
two months before I was born.  
My middle name I shared with my mother's mother, Helen Irene.  

Helen Irene O'Hair McCrary, the woman I called Mema,
died just a few hours ago.

As you can probably guess, I will be absent from the blog for a while.  
I have decided not to participate in the Blogfest, 
but please do support the other blogs involved by visiting it when it begins.  
Thank you for your patience and your support of Writer Quirk.
