"Memorial:I have wonderful memories of time spent with my Grandmother... homemade spiced apples, bread & butter pickles, mashed potatoes and fresh bakery bread. But the most endearing of them will be the lessons learned from her old school textbooks and readers. Thank you so much for loving us all! May you now be at peace in heaven."
