Tribute to Grandma-Final Project for RDED 535

I did my final project on my Grandmother, Abenicia A. Lujan. My grandma passed away last year. She was my world and my mom, since she raised me since I was 2 weeks old. She was such a happy and loving lady. Her tortillas were the best in all of northern New Mexico, how many people do you know that can make tortillas where you pull one apart and have two tortillas because they were so thick. I am blessed to have had her in my life for 26 years. She saw me when I graduated high school, got married, got my Bachelors Degree and most importantly she met my two beautiful girls. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. She was a very healthy lady until she suffered a fall in 2007 and broke her neck and was bed ridden for her remaining years. She survived the broken neck, it healed, what took my grandma was face cancer that had come back after 12 years of remission. My mother and I along with a few others took care of my grandma till the very end. I love her and miss her greatly. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her or something or someone reminds me of her. I hope you enjoy my video as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Also I want to pay a small tribute with some of my pictures to one of my uncles, one of my grandma’s son’s who also passed away on June 8th, 2010 after a short battle with Leukemia. Uncle “Mande” Armando we also love you and will miss you too and take care of my Grandma and Grandpo.

What a lovely lady-such shining eyes and warm smile. The large family shots are very impressive! The music was very moving and a perfect choice for the nature of this project. Thank goodness we have photos to help us remember the people important to us.

Your tribute to your grandma and uncle were very emotional. You did a good job. So sorry for your loss it is hard to talk about loved one that are no longer here. It was a wonderful way to remember them. The use of the transistions and music helped set the tone for the video Good Job

Lot of emotional videos. Great job and great tribute to your grandma. The music makes me think of being at my grandmas house and the tortilla story, I think we all have one of those with grandma. Nice to see a little of your family history and hear about some of your family stories. Great job and use of picture, effect and music.

The music you used in your vidoe was perfect, especially that first song. It was great to share a timeline of pictures of your grandmothers. The transtions were done well also. I really enjoyed watching this. I want to make a video for my grandma of our family now!! good job, pam!

I loved that you chose a personal montage to honor your grandmother. The transitions of still shot to still shot express excitement. It is also nice that you chronicled the picture of her time line. This allows the viewer to take the journey of her life. Great stuff :)
