Dear Family members,
I was never able to meet your Granny, but Wendy shared many wonderful memories of her with me over the past few weeks. She sounds like the kind of grandma that everybody would love - and she knew so much!!!! She taught Wendy all about chickens, and now Wendy has passed that information on to me. All I can say, I wish that I had met her, and I'm so sorry that I didn't. May you all keep those important lessons from Granny in your lives and hearts forever. Thank you, Wendy, for sharing little bits and pieces of her with me!
Your neighbor, Dorothy
