Granny (70), Papa (73), Andy (4), Eric (2 1/2), and Casey (6 mo.). This picture was made at Granny & Papa's in back of the Smokehouse. I remember when we were growing up the front porch and behind the Smokehouse were places the family would sit and talk. You could sit behind the Smokehouse and be in the warm sunshine and it would block the wind on a cold day. The front porch always seemed so cool and breezy and so relaxing rocking and swinging. We always enjoyed playing ball in the pasture and camp fires at the cabin in the woods behind Papa & Granny's house. These were some of our favorite places in the whole wide world growing up and even till this day.

Even when Granny was in a wheel chair, she took such good care of my Papa. She made homemade biscuits every morning and waited for him to wake up. She helped him get his clothes on and enjoyed eating breakfast together. She did everything for him and enjoyed every minute.

After Papa passed away I remember bringing her home from the funeral home. She was so worried about Papa, she said he felt so cold. Its like she never realized he died, she thought he was just asleep. The Lord gave her memory and strength to take care of him and after he died her life was complete. Her memory left so fast after his passing.

It was a sad day when she had to go live in the nursing home but she was all smiles, she loved people. She loved to play jokes on the nurses. She would ride her wheel chair up and down the halls and loved to turn the nurses lights off. She was loved by everyone.

One day I was visiting her (her memory was gone, she never recognized me at the nursing home) and she looked around the crowded room and said, "How am I going to feed all of these people?" She was so use to cooking for her family in the past. That brought a smile to my face. She was one special lady! Thinking of her always brings a smile and a tear. So blessed! (Bic Bic)
