Grandma Millie was our source of adventure growing up. I will never forget her getting off the plane from California with a rose in her mouth. I asked her what she had been doing. Her response – “Being a midwife, delivering hippies’ babies in the river beds.” I had no idea what that meant, but it sounded cool! I now know she was awesome and brave. I loved her so much.
