Three weeks ago my Grandma died suddenly at 85.  4 days before she died she was healthy so I'm glad she entered Heaven fast and peacefully.  Besides thinking of her & still going to make my weekly phone calls or schedule a weekend visit, I find myself migrating towards the kitchen of what she taught me whether a hint, ingredient or whole meal.  She wasn't really a baker but she could cook anything & everything.  She liked certain things homemade otherwise there were other people to bake or a nearby store (she had a great bakery near her).  She said her paren't worked long hours, she took care of her brothers, the house & the cooking after school so from early on, she knew how to command the kitchen.  My husband said this is normal & he loves all the meals because Grandma was a good cook especially her best dish (we are German after all I tell him) sauerbraten/red cabbage/potato balls or mashed potatoes (depending on her mood).

Jeanine, how sweet that your grandmother lived to be that age and then God called her home.  It would have been difficult to watch her suffer through a long illness.  What sweet memories you have of her.

I want to add my condolences on the loss of your grandmother, Jeannine. It sounds as if you had a very special relationship with her, and I'm sure you will treasure that when she comes to your thoughts.

So sorry Jeannine G for your loss.  Gradmas are special in a woman's life, as are Mothers.  It's tough when any family member is called Home.  Your love of her will keep you close to her.  She is now with her Maker, and He will watch over her for you.  On the same note, I just returned from CA after attending a Memorial Service for both my Sister-In-Law and my Brother.  She died on February 7th and my Brother died on June 2nd.  Their ashes were committed to the Sea, so they are together again.  They had been married for 63 years, and they were still on their "Honeymoon".  They had a beautiful life together and I know it will continue forever!  I keep them in my prayers, and I know that someday, we will again be united.

Jeannine sorry about your loss.  Memories are strong and it seems like the ones from the kitchen are even stronger. 

Darla, I am glad you are back and I am sure they are happy to be together again.  And the Honeymoon continues.
