Life brings tears, smiles, and memories: the tears dry, the smile fades, but the memories live on forever. ~Unknown~

Aunt Dean House made the BEST CRANBERRY SALAD for family holidays! All my earliest great memories are around her table. She was with us for a short time only, so I especially look forward to seeing her in the New Heaven and New Earth.
