grandmabetty33 Many of you have been asking about Harley. He's adjusting to Grandma being gone better than we thought, but with the absence of Grandma, he never leaves @hopebelden 's side. 4mon

grandmabetty33 Hey you. Yes YOU!
Wouldn't Grandma want to know that you have a #Smile on your face?

Wouldn't Grandma want you to #BeHappy?

Well, don't just sit there.
Smile.
Why?
Because you can

grandmabetty33 One year ago today, I created something that would change not only my life, not only my family's life, and not only grandma Betty's life, but the lives of many thousands of people. On January 3rd, 2014, I created Grandma's Instagram account.

What would happen in the coming months would baffle our entire family. A woman with cancer would take the internet head on. She'd post selfies. She'd tell you how much she loves you. She'd tell you to keep your head up and smile no matter what. She would dance her little butt off. She would make us all laugh, smile, and be happy. She wouldn't judge you no matter what. She wouldn't take her Instagram - Famous life for granted. After all she was just "...plain old Grandma Betty." One year ago today, I created something that would change my life, and 8 months later, it would come to a much anticipated end.

Did Grandma help you with anything? Please take a second to tell me below if Grandma ever made you #Smile, #Laugh, or just #BeHappy.
I WANNA HEAR IT!!!!!

grandmabetty33 Zach here. I wanted to post this picture, because I know grandma would think "This is just so purdy" (pretty) I miss her a lot lately, and everyone on Grandma's Instagram reminds me how much of an impact she had on so many people's lives. All in all, that makes me happy more than anything. 4mon
  •   dancestar206 That's pretty 4mon

grandmabetty33 Grandma's family is doing okay. We're doing our best to keep our heads up, because it's especially hard to during the Holiday season.
We would like to thank everyone who has continued to follow Grandma's account in support of her and our family.

grandmabetty33 I know we've posted this a couple times, but this is very fitting for today.
This Christmas was different than any other christmas I've experienced.. Going to family dinners and opening presents without Grandma was probably one of the hardest things I've done. It's hard. It's hard to fight back the tears when you're reminded that she's not here. We miss her, and it's hard to get past that this holiday season.

Remind yourself to #Smile and #BeHappy just as we do everyday, because that's what Grandma would want. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to everyone!
