Mrs. Holcombe was a wonderful gardener. She grew beautiful flowers and wonderful vegetables. She would can her green beans and they were the best ever! I could eat them right out of the jar! We often had family celebrations together and I would always ask her to bring green beans. She was gracious, kind and giving always putting her family first. I will miss her very much.
