|GRANNY ALWAYS SAID. . .|
|"MAKE GOOD MEMORIES - THEY LAST A LIFETIME" - Warm memories of childhood and my adult years grow sweeter with time. Granny always encouraged holding the memory of good things close to your heart. Grief, personal sorrow, and her relationship with God were personal private things not to be put on public display. Even though she had many times of sorrow, she and God took care of it and she had a smile and hug for everyone. Her strength carried our family through many sad times. The memory of her strength now helps me let go of sad things, concentrate on the good things and spend time making the "good memories" we all cherish so much.|
