She really did love to mow. One day my grandpa took they keys to the mower so she would stay out of the heat and not mow she got mad and went and got a pair of scissors out of the house and started cutting the grass by their front porch. My grandpa was mad when he got back home and seen what she was doing so he gave her the keys and let her finish. She was very perisistent and nothing was going to stop her. She will be missed
