Elvira G. Ponce
August 30, 2019
I recall the smell of amazing food coming from my aunt's kitchen, of course, only my grandmother could make something so delicious. Even when we weren't hungry there she was turning over a grill chesse full of butter. She was always so cute as she quickly paced out the door to make it to the next bingo session on time. She would walk if she didn't have a ride, she sure taught me about determination. If the local bingo hall had a wall of Fame she certainly would be part of it. I remember her special remedies of healing that brought so much comfort to me when I was young. Her highwaisted pants and button down shirts that only she could pull off. I miss you, I love you, and someday I'll give you the grand baby you asked for year after year. Thank you Grandma for taking such good care of us all.
