Memories where do I start there is so many I can write about but i will only mention a couple. The first is when I was growing up and got in trouble at her house I always got the small paddle used on me I think if the memory serves right everyone that knew grandma got the paddle on some occasion. The next occasion is she was always out in the yard doing yard work whether it was planting flowers pulling weeds or sitting in the swing under the big tree. She always loved flowers and there was not any that she could not tell you about. I remember the walks to the creek with her and walking in the pasture. Grandma i love you and your at peace now tell grandpa hi for me and I will always love you and cherish the memories you have given me.
