This past April, Beverly Beckham wrote an article in \ The Boston Globe regarding her grandson. She spoke about how he had put her on a pedestal, turning to her to spell a word, give a definition, or any of the hundred and one things a grandmother can do to be special in her grandchildren’s eyes. She spoke about enjoying that pedestal with her own children until they got to the age when mother knew nothing and they knew it all.
