My sister and I called our great-grandmother "Ma-Maw". I remember a lot of people called her "Lacey" or "Lace".
She died when we were 5 and 6, but I can still smell her house. Always a clean smell mixed with something good that was cooking. I don't remember her talking much but she never spared the hugs.
