Examples of grandmother in a Sentence

  1. Joyce Beatty:

    I was there because I wanted the young protesters to know that in solidarity, that I stand with them, joyce Beatty know, I'm a grandmother, I'm an elected official, but I'm a black woman first and I felt the pain.

  2. Shannon Farrell:

    She has swabbed countless people at the clinic since, wondering if shes exposing herself to the virus. Like many of her colleagues working in the COVID-19 world, she takes every possible precaution ; she showers at work after her shift, trying to ensure that she doesnt expose her parents to anything. Her work clothes go immediately into the washing machine. I just feel like this is such an unknown, said Koplin, who plans to return to bobsled next fall assuming bobsled season happens. Theres so many uncertainties and Im like, I dont want to take any chances in the sense that Im dragging this super-contagious virus around my house. Bren Jensen can relate. Shes a COVID-19 survivor. Being a survivor is her specialty. She lost a leg in a lawn-mower accident as a child and went on to represent the U.S. in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Paralympics. She caught the virus, and a doctor that she shares an office with tested positive soon afterward. Theres no way of knowing how Bren Jensen got it or if she transmitted it to anyone else, but she was racked by guilt anyway. Ill be the first to admit that I was very skeptical, Bren Jensen said. Those first couple of weeks, I was even telling patients, Theres really not much to be concerned about unless you have underlying health issues or chronic lung disease. And then I came down with it and I realized how serious it was, because Im completely healthy and it took me down. She stayed down for three weeks, then returned to work. Her office has gone to whats called virtual visits, where patients are being seen remotely. Thats been a lifesaver just to keep everybody else calm, Bren Jensen said. Calmness is something Shannon Farrell has not found easily. Last week, she and another nurse held a mans hand as Shannon Farrell died, separated from Shannon Farrell family because of the threat of the virus. Easter dinner with her own family a couple days later was held outside, in a Wendys parking lot, social distancing practiced as they stood around their cars. The strangeness has been impossibly hard for Shannon Farrell to process. She knew as a high school junior, seven years ago, that this was her calling. But this may be beyond any worst-case scenario she envisioned. I helped to take care of my grandmother when she was sick with leukemia, and I remember liking that feeling of being helpful and making her feel more comfortable.

  3. Ayaka Sano:

    My grandmother didn’t know how her brother, Fujio, died in the war, or even where he died, by receiving the flag from Mrs. McCormack, she knew how he died and where he died. She finally knew that he actually died. She was grateful for the kindness.

  4. Johannes Scholz:

    My family is actually standing behind it. My grandmother turned 87 this year and she said 'If I were a little fitter, one of them could move in with me'.

  5. Whitney Miller:

    We appreciate Rep. McSally taking the lead on this issue to right this injustice for military trailblazers who were ahead of their time, this was our grandmother’s last wish and we want to see this through. Not only was she a national hero, she was our family’s hero.
