Boyfriend thought I was joking about beloved elder

DEAR HARRIETTE: I celebrate my grandmother’s birthday every year in some special way, even though she died many years ago. My grandmother meant the world to me, and I never want to forget her.

I usually take the day off from work and spend my time remembering her. One year I went to see a floral display at my local museum because my grandmother kept a beautiful garden. Another year I took a trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture to see an exhibit. My grandmother was a domestic worker, and I wanted to see how that part of our history might be included in the museum.
