Some of my favorite memories with Grandma were when she would teach me to sew and crochet. She would tell me to ALWAYS read the pattern first and to follow it step by step. She would say "Don't skip ahead or you will have to go back and redo it again". We would spend time talking on the phone about good recipes we found or about all the crazy things the kids were doing and the things my uncle's did growing up. When I was younger she would take me to the old Navy base in Orlando to shop at the exchange and eat in the cafeteria. It was almost a weekend tradition. She was an amazing Grandma and Mother and left behind a legacy that will be remembered for years and years to come. She was and will continue to be loved by everyone whos life she touched.
