"Dear Holly ... I view life very differently from you. For example, when I was young, my mother worked at night and I stayed alone when I came home from school. My mother punished us by hitting us with my father's razor strap (Dad was rarely home, since he worked in NJ)...and when she hit us kids, we had black and blue bruises for a month. Our toilet was an outhouse until I was 13 years old and we had to haul our drinking water in milk cans from the spring. Never once, did I have a friend stay over because I was so ashamed of the way we lived. But my mother did the best she could under those circumstances...at that time. My mother never said she was sorry, nor have I ever asked her to say she was sorry...Hopefully, you can understand that Gram did the best that she could do in raising me...I did the best that I could do in raising you...and you will do the best that you can for your own children. None of us will even be close to perfection! ... Love Mom"
Oh Yes... this is the same (my) great grandmother who supposedly wrote/signed an affidavit that Holly was never abused by Eleanor. Hmmm.... see a pattern anyone?
After everything that my mother's mother has done, my mom still feels bad for her because she is also a battered woman still trapped with her abuser.
Grandmother, when you are ready to tell the truth we will be here for you! ~love Jennifer
