Glory and Love came as sisters in 1989. We were supposed to give one away, but ended up keeping both.
Glory always had a silly grin and was the tomboy of the two. She liked playing but never liked being hugged. As she grew older, her limbs gave way, her eyes turned dull, and her hearing faded, but that made her even more endearing, with her drunken gait and silly grin.
We used to call her gorilla because she was black and had the whitest fangs. She used to sneak into the kitchen and raid the trash. We miss her dearly, our dear sweet gorilla grandma.
