Helping Hands

We lost a sincere songwriter and creative musician with the death of Bill Withers. He will be missed. We are fortunate to have his songs to help us remember. One especially moving song is a tribute to a special person in his life who helped guide him in both big and little ways. That person was his grandma. Her hands were strong when they needed to be. They were tender at the right time. They could express many emotions. Many of us had a grandma in our lives who did those things for us when we needed a helping hand.

      The hand in the photo is of my mom. It was taken 20 yrs ago a few months after she had a stroke. Dad missed her dearly. She was grandma to twenty-some grandkids. She had a phobia about snakes.
