Black & White Photo of my late Grandparents Larry and Marie Nisperos back in the day.
My loving Grandma Marie helped me become a devout,
practicing Catholic from the heavens above.
The relationship between a grandchild and grandparent is a very special one. While grandparents act as an authority figure and provide unconditional love, they also get to spoil their grandchildren in a way parents simply can’t. But beyond that, grandparents also wield incredible influence.
She did know about the Catholic faith and passed on her knowledge the best she could to her family. My grandparents had been connected with God for a long time — and you can tell, too. She made sure to take her children and grandchildren to church and we were all baptized. I smile as I remember Sunday’s with Grandma Marie…Getting modestly dressed up for our Lord, the women wore fancy dresses hats/veils, the men were in their Sunday suits, the pews were still wooden, and we socialized and had doughnuts after mass.
I credit my grandmother for planting the seed of faith regularly, such as, praying and telling me stories about Jesus that lead this now devout Catholic back home. She left me with lovely memories of seeing her making the sign of the cross often and prayers at night before bed and at meals. Also, when I was younger, my grandmother told me God has given me a guardian angel to help me when in need and to watch over me always, day and night.
I am so blessed and thankful to God for all his graces.
This site is in honor of my late Grandmother,
Doris Marie Nisperos, Sept. 21, 1923 to Feb. 23, 2005.
“She loved hats, chickens, cactus, cognac,
Smokey, laughter… and her family.”
Please take a moment to pray for her and all the souls in purgatory…
Eternal rest grant unto Marie, O Lord.
And let the perpetual light shine upon her.
And may the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
