This is a pumpkin. A black pumpkin. It may not seem like much, but it’s very important to a part of my family. This was handmade by my mother's friend for Sharon Lash. Sharon Lash had two inoperable tumors in her brain. One behind her left eye, and one in the center of her brain. They were cancerous. We found out September 13, 2017. Everyone thought she was developing Dementia, like her mother. She would get bad headaches and she struggled to remember things. It was a sad time from that day on. It was hard on my step-dad, Pete Lash, and my mother, Sherry Lash. They were the closest family to help take care of her. She died soon after on October 5, 2017, at 1:00 AM. This black pumpkin was made for her because her favorite color was black and she loved autumn. After she died, my mother was the one who had the pumpkin. She gave it to me. This pumpkin reminds me of my step-grandmother and my best friend.
