My grandma died a couple of days ago. She was a neat person and had a big influence on me. She was a good cook, and when I was little I really looked forward to the box of homemade cookies, banana and/or zucchini breads, and fruitcake that she would send us. We would drive across the country from NY to Oregon/Washington every other summer and then we'd stock up on her jams and canned fruit & veggies. I especially liked the canned apricots and the canned cherries. Both of my grandmas did everything in their power to feed their grandkids well, I think it's the law for Lutheran grandmas to do so. In some ways when people visit my place I feel like a Lutheran grandmother doting on the house guests...
Love this, my cousin Jamie scanned it
Really love this, my cousin Breanna up in Kodiak took it
