I had to also add some more memories. Christmas time was always the best at my granny Fry's House. The whole family would show up and her cooking was phenomenal. No one can out cook my granny fry! She would cook the best cakes, pies, dressing, potato salad turkey ham you name it it was there. Another awesome memory was her chocolate gravy and biscuits. She would always cook that for me anytime I ask her to. I could go on and on with the special memories I hold in my heart. I'll always love you and miss you. Tears of joy and tears of pain are running down my face at this moment. Until we see each other again granny fry RIP. 💕

I have so so many good memories with my sweet granny fry. I have pretty much always lived beside her. The whole time I was growing up I would run across our driveway to my granny fry house and she would always cook for me, play old maid cards with me, play checkers with me. I love her so much. I will miss her everyday! When I went and seen her a few days ago, I seen she wasn't going to be here with us any longer. And there is no way I can put into words how I feel right now. I just know how much she loved me and the awesome memories I will have for a lifetime. I love you so much Granny. RIP you are now my Guardian Angel. 💕

I remember so many times with my granny she was what i would say a saint she was always so sweet, loving, and selfless i remember exactly what her trailer smelt like the way her room was set up our nights spent there was always so great she would always pull her hideaway out and i remember going through her photos with her and her telling me about her family and she spoke about everyone in them photos with so much love never said a bad thing about anyone. I remember laying down a night before going to sleep and always seeing her two christmas teddy bears sitting on her wood stand with the date 1994 or 1995 on there foot. All the loving holidays we spent with her was nothing but joy she is a light that lit our families path every time we got together. Granny you will always be in our hearts you have left a great impact on our lives and everyone should learn to walk the path you did everyday. You are now brought home to be with your father in heaven but i know you will look down on this family from time to time to check in and make sure all is well. I LOVE YOU GRANNY. Until we see each other in the clearing at the end of the path RIP in our hearts never forgotten.

I have so many memories. She would always watch us catch fireflies while she sat in her rocking chair on the porch. I would be in her kitchen using a butter knife and she would be watching me like a hawk so I wouldn't cut myself....I would tell her Granny it's a butter knife....it isn't going to cut me...she would always worry about us kids getting hurt. She was so mothering. I remember the smell of her cold cream. I remember the way she dressed. The way she would fuss if we were to just show up out of the blue because she wasn't "fixed" up. I remember when all of us got together for Christmas and Thanksgiving and Easter...we all did that at Granny's house. It was where we gathered. As I got older a memory that has always stuck with me is this one....one day while riding with Granny in her Chevette with the rusted floor boards and cracked dash and almost primer paint on the outside. She would drive so very slow and timid. I remember a semi was coming up on her pretty fast and she ever so slowly puts that blinker on and moves to the side of the road. I'm like "Granny, what are ya doing" and she said "I'm going to let him go on by".... I held my breath a lot riding with Granny. But she loved to drive herself. She did NOT like to be drove around. She loved her independence. She was very kind to all of us kids. She loved us deeply. Can't none of us say she didnt. Granny always had a sweet hug for us and a beautiful smile. Granny Fry was an amazing person. Independent. Loving. Caring. Kind. Beautiful. Passionate.Mother. Grandmother. Greatgrandmother. GreatGreatgrandmother❤
