We had some sad news at the end of May — Art’s Grandma Griffin passed away at age 89 in Jacksonville, Ala., a town with infinite charm, but, in Grandma’s mind, one in which no one had the ability to cook a New England boiled dinner. The whole Coulson clan gathered for the memorial service, including Art’s brother, Jim, sister, Sally, his Dad and stepmom (all shown above), as well as Art Sr.’s brothers Dick and Jon and sister, Margie Ellen, and their families. It was good to see everyone, but a sad occasion nonetheless. Aunt Rita had a great idea after the funeral — the whole family went to the Sonic drive-in for sundaes in honor of Grandma. She loved to stop for a hot fudge sundae on her way back to The Meadows after shopping or going out for dinner. Rest in peace, Grandma.
