A PORT IN THE STORM
My grandmother was the one
who took me to church at a young age and
introduced me to Jesus. She was the

RESPECT YOUR ELDERS
At age twenty-six,

adults, so for three years she
frequently disguised herself as an
eighty-five-year-old woman. From 1979 to

of a professional makeup artist and visited 116
