I remember so many things about Grandma but one memory always comes to mind. When i was a kid, my mom brought us over to grandma's house and I remember tortillas and frijoles. So tasty. Still cant make my tortillas like her but thank you for white wings flour. But, one thing we always used to do at her house was look for coins. Grandma always had coins lying around. As well as thread and cloth for her quilts. And we loved playing with her rotary phone. She loved when my mom would visit with the "reds". My sister and I were called that because we were the only ones to have curly red hair. Everytime I drink chocolate milk from a carton, it brings back memories of her old house. I always loved when she had chocolate milk from school in her fridge! I love you grandma and I'll miss you tons!
