Crying with my Grandmother on my Mother’s Bed

Last Tuesday I cried on my mother’s bed, after she told me a story about my grandmother.

I’ve only met my grandmother once before. My mother took me to Nigeria to meet her when I was a baby.

I don’t remember the trip at all, but I do remember my grandmother’s death. I was nine years old at the time.
