My Grammy passed away yesterday.  This was one of my favorite photos of us - my wedding day.

Some of my favorite memories of her:

- She was wonderful with plants and grew the most beautiful tiger lilies and African violets.

- She had a great love of animals and always had pets she cared for... except for the pesky squirrels who would eat her lilies!

- She was an amazing baker and cook. She always made my favorite Sour Cream pound cake when I came to visit and I still have the recipe written down in her own hand. I've made it many times myself to much raving.

- Grits - Southern Grammies make them the best.

- Sweet Tea - you need at least a few cups of sugar per pitcher!

- She one time scared the heck out of me with this monster mask we had. Her sense of humor was amazing

- She had an enviable collection of salt and pepper shakers

She was the sweetest lady I've ever known.

Aww I feel you and I hope all your loved ones are alright :).

My lovely granny passed away 3 months ago. I'll miss her forever.

I've been browsing your blog for quite a while now, but I think this is the first time I've left a comment. I love it, by the way.
