Title of Artwork: "In Peggy's House are Many Rooms"
Description of Artwork: My short story is an homage to my grandmother and her dream home. In my childhood, this home was a place of togetherness and beauty—filled with laughter and love and light. But as we have grown, and as life has gone on, our family has endured many losses, and we have felt it deeply, and feel it still when we come together in her home that will now never be quite full enough. This house has a hallway that we refer to as the "Hall of Fame" because it is lined wall-to-ceiling with family photographs. It is our history. And there, we are all together and alive and whole. When I think of Heaven, I imagine it will be like those early childhood days spent in my grandmother’s house. We won’t need streets of gold or gates of pearl. We’ll just need each other.

Absolutely gorgeous. You are an incredible writer. Thank you for sharing a part of Grandma with everyone. (By the way I graduated a year earlier than the rest of my class)

As Owen Wilson would say, "wow". (Just kidding, it was really good)
