I had the honor of calling mrs. Sweet Grandma for 14 years. She will always be accredited for teaching me how to make gravy and how to make some of the best corn bread I've ever had. Although she attempted every year to get me to eat beets I still don't like them. I will always have fond memories of helping her pick green beans in her garden that she loved too proving to her that she actually did have big fish in her pond. Heaven truly gained an angel.
