Things I will remember the most about my grandma...
She was very crazy clean
She was always well dressed and shopped at nice stores
She also spoiled me rotten as a child
She called me her little “Wonder Bug”
My aunt still refers to me as grandmas little angel.
She always made date nut torte for holiday gatherings
She took me to Herpolsheimer’s and Saugatuck on occasion
She never drove a car
Her bathroom smelled like Avon bubble bath in the pink bottle.
Her stairway to her upstairs was basically a shelving system for all the new purchases she made recently
I remember the little tea sets displayed in her glass kitchen cabinet
Thanks for everything grandma, may you Rest In Peace, ❤️Ryan
