Granny was a great lady who truly cared. She had a hard life and told stories of Great Grandma Hattie going off to have another child. She could get a Southern accent by saying peanut butter cookies. This is one of my favorite memories. She could cook like there was no tomorrow long as she had eggs potatoes or noodles she could make a mean dish. Grandma loved her coffee, she also loved her cats and dogs.
