Every big holiday, the family would gather at Grandma and Grandpa Etter's house, and it was always special! No matter who you were, if you came into grandma's home, you got a hug! In her home, you were family.

I remember going to grandmas and having parties downstairs in the basement with my cousin and listening to The Beach Boys and grandma and grandpa would dance with us. I also remember helping grandma make homemade pies for thanksgiving and I also remember her going to my dace events before I went to the dance and we would get pictures together. And I remember when she made her homemade raspberry jam. And I remember being in the garden with her and helping her garden.
