Jennifer Gates Hayes

  • Grandmother. Few words are as evocative. It could be argued that its meaning lies as much in the name giver as in the name. Grandmothers, like beauty, lie as much in the eyes and souls of the beholder as in the women themselves. It is the gratitude, love, strength, and dreams that they inspire in their grandchildren that make them grandmothers.
