I will always remember grandma waking up to the stuffed peppers I made. She had been sick and that smell woke her up and she had a good appetite. A couple days later she asked for them again. I will also remember our talks, laughs, and secrets. We had a special connection and understanding. I will greatly miss her but I am so happy that she walking in heaven and I will see her again someday. Praise the Lord! That grandma would say to.
