My Grandmother Was An Author Too | My Daddy Cares by Pam Meaker

Today, I’m sharing something special in the honor of my dearest grandmother. Her very own published book, My Daddy Cares.

My grandmother was a beautiful soul that truly made a difference in all the lives she touched. She was such a positive and vibrant woman, and she will forever be missed. I’m so incredibly grateful that I was blessed to have a woman like her in my life. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of the two of us in her garden, playing our game. I love her dearly. May she rest in peace.



My Daddy Cares

About the author:

Pammie was born on the 23rd of June 1936 in the city of Sheffield! Having grown up in the war, devastation and surrounding bomb attacks were quite normal to her! She was regularly taking cover in the bomb shelter during the night! I remember her telling me how she would have to queue to get a small piece of lard. And how she ate her first banana at the age of twelve! At the tender age of 15, this beautiful girl and her family bravely relocated to southern Rhodesia where she met the love of her life Rodney Meaker! Pammie had 5 boys and a daughter. She was the matriarch of a loving and close family but she also had an incredible amount of hardship! Her one son died of cancer at a young age of 33, another survived a terrible motorcycle accident! And then all the regular stuff a mom would have to deal with having 5 hooligan (motorcycle mad) sons and a daughter who was as much of a tomboy as they come! Pammie’s house has elastic walls and her pots of food always had place for one more guest around the table! She spent her life helping, counseling and simply being there for folk! As a devout Christian, she honored God in every aspect of her life and touched many, many souls! About 14 years ago Pammie was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy. She dealt with the illness bravely and was soon in remission. Two years ago, the cancer came back aggressively and Pammie passed away in January 2020! Her book “My Daddy Cares” is a testament to her life and is but a taste of God’s small mercies in her life. Read it and be blessed!
