My grandmother, Consuelo Florence, daughter of Florence Consuelo. Jewish, French, Scottish. Born in New Orleans. Impeccable dresser. Avid reader. Hair always set. Loved owls and cats. Stern AF. Picked blackberries for fun. Grew Tiger Lilies. Contemplated life on her deck in the woods. Always drove a Cadillac, but I often pondered when I was a girl that she seemed more like a Mercedes Benz lady. Died in 2005, but we decided to put her cremains in the War Eagle River as opposed to laying her to rest next to her husband for eternity, for she outshone him as a human by far. We stood on the bridge as a family and watched her float freely down the river, never to be tethered again. I miss the way she spoke to me, in both her speech and intention. #deathpositivity#rivercremains#familia#wareagleriver#owlsandcats#blackberries#tigerlilies#neworleansborn#arkansas
