Feisty—that was it, exactly. A word to describe her was feisty. She appeared fragile, with her puckered up face, the deep wrinkles around the small brown eyes and the thin lips. Her body was thin. She could not have been taller than 5 feet. Her suede moccasins were dark brown; her stockings were thick and beige-colored.  She looked at you with compassion and understanding, as if she didn’t have any trouble putting herself in your shoes. Her small hands showed deep blue/purple veins. Her arms were wrinkled. She remembered faces and names. She gave lollipops to the neighborhood kids. When you were sick, she felt your illness as her own. You were hers ; that was all you needed to know.
