Mama Hollaran was the only Great Grandparent I ever knew, I was 14 when she died. I remember going to visit her at her house, everyone sitting around her and enjoying listening to her. Daddy would always walk me & Susan down to the pond in front of her house and he would skip rocks on top of the water. Even though Mama Hollaran was the only great grandparent I ever knew, I was very fortunate to have all my grandparents longer than most do, growing up and being so much a part of my life.

I was also blessed to have know all of granny's sisters. They were all close to each other just like sisters should be. I have many memories, all were great cooks, Louise lived in the big sharp curve so we went very slow by her house always waving as we went by on our way to Granny & Papa's, enjoyed visits to Shannon to see Nell, she loved to make pottery and had the prettiest little house with beautiful sparkling clean windows, Frances was quite but always had a beautiful smile, Annie Ruth was so interesting to listen to and was always laughing, Annis always decorated every room in her house at Christmas so we always had to visit during Christmas time and she always baked delicious cakes.

These seem like small things that I remember each of them by but they make me smile when I think of each of them. One by one they have passed away but now they are all together again. Sad granny's generation is gone but I have so many memories and will always treasure them, even the small ones. (Bic Bic)
