I have lots of memories of this place in the photo. NO one could cook like grandma and grandpa, what a character he was. I miss them both.

Mom missed you so much when you moved back to Kentucky. She wrote to Louise until her own passing. I hope you're both enjoying each others company in Heaven and that I'll see you both when I get there.
