I so enjoyed reading Granny's interview. I had no idea she had been overseas. She has led an interesting life!


So interesting. I'm glad someone asked how she met your Dad, that was what I was going to ask. I knew she was one of many children, but I forgot how many. With which sibling was she the closest?


Hi Toots, thanks for your comment...glad that you enjoyed the interview! I just asked Granny, and she said she was closest to her brother James because she did more things and went places with him.

I loved reading Granny’s interview. I learned so much about her life that I didn’t know before. What a full and interesting life! Granny is such a blessing to all who know her. She is a great conversationalist and has genuine kindness and compassion towards others. She will definitely get her wish of being remembered as a good person.

I enjoyed reading Granny's answers so much and tried to think of what my answers would be. I loved that walking was one of her favorite things to do - it has always been a favorite of mine but regret that I can't take those long walks anymore. I so enjoyed the one time I met her and found that we have a lot in common. I'm not 90 yet but am heading in that direction rather quickly.

Thank you, Granny, for your detailed answers to our questions. You are an amazing woman, and I am privileged to count you as a special friend. Thank you for being the wonderful mother you are to Deb and Bet. They are the women they are today because of your godly influence. I loved reading your answers to my questions... I could hear your voice! I love you! Rhonda


I love her last line ♥️


Thank you for the interview! Now I have a story to tell my granddaughters when they ask “ where did you learn to make fried apples?”. So enjoyed this!

Oh my goodness, that was one of the best blog posts I've ever read...anywhere!!! Granny, thank you SO much for sharing these treasures from your life! And Deb, thank you for investing your time to write it. Miss you both lots and hope to see you soon. Lots of love!!!😚


Oh my goodness...this was such a neat post! My emotions ranged from laughter, joy, tears, surprize, amazement, and awe at the life so full and well lived. I loved reading about her life as a child and young girl. Its hard to pick a favorite question and answer but her closing words brought me to tears. YES!!! we will see each other in the morning on the other side....forever to rejoice together around our Lord's throne.
