Kristy - “The trunk must be up!”

Grandma’s request was always, “the trunk must be up!” whenever she was on her quest to add yet another elephant to her collection. She said elephants (with their trunks up!) symbolized good luck. For me, every time I see one my heart fills with my love for her. On July 3, 2010 my Grandma suffered a terrible stroke. Two days later, with Grandma still in a coma, my sister and I decided, with much guilt, to go ahead and take a break and watch our favorite weekly show, The Bachelorette. Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky was visiting India. Halfway through the episode I sent my sister a text message: “Did you see Ali’s necklace??!!” “No. What is it? What is it?!” was her reply. Two minutes later I got a “OMG! It’s an elephant! It’s Grandma! She’s letting us know that she’s going to be OK no matter what ” Our beloved Grandma passed away the next morning. Not long after I was excited to find the necklace Ali wore. I wear my necklace every day to feel the love and good luck Grandma gives me daily. I wanted my sister to feel the same so I bought her one too! Thank you Alex!
