How do you choose one Memory out of 30 years? I guess you don’t, you can only remember them all. The good the bad the everyday. So here are just a few. I was lucky enough to live with Grandma and Grandpa while I went to college. If I had to choose one memory I would say that she was the one who taught me how to sew on a sewing machine. The issue here is that her machine did not have a foot peddle but rather a knee peddle. Every time I sew now I will remember the first time she showed me how to use her machine and how hard it is to use a foot peddle. She is also the person I would call when I got off work or was going even to work. weather it was a good day or even a bad day she was all ways there to answer the phone. She always knew what to say when I would call her for anything. I loved to call her to confirm recipes. I remember when I moved to Minnesota I called her to ask how many bags of red hearts she add to her apple sauce, as mine had come out thick and super sweet. She just laughed and said sweet heart you don’t need that much and laughed. She was easy to talk to and always a phone call away. The greatest thing I’m going to miss now is hearing her say I love you at the end of our calls.
