The 'Great' Grandmother

Hyle Troy's picture
Submission type:

Many many years from now....

A family walk, Hyle, Tuki and the many several grandchildren ambled down Hope Springs Main Street.

As they drew level with The Waffelhus the group paused. Hyle looked fondly at he old diner. It was of course long sold and Hyle was long retired. The conversation turned to stories of the old days. Of the customers. Of when Tuki worked there. Of Great Aunt Sorja. And of course of the parties, and dancing.

Just then Grandchild # 17 chirped into the conversation 

  " Can you still dance, Bedstemor ? "

Hyle turned smiling at the little girl 

   " Of course I can , Alecia.. Watch !"

Tuki had her camera in her purse and snapped the scene for posterity.... it would be the last photograph she would take of her mother.


A few days later Hyle passed away suddenly but peacfully in her sleep.

(( Joe and I discussed how what wouls happen to Hyle on the fullness of time as part of 'The History' . This is a small illustration ))

((Dancing to the last, yes, this is the way Hyle would surely like to be remembered.

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.
