My Paternal Great Grandmother
She was a very short woman.
Grandpap would take me to the hen house to gather eggs.
We would take them to Granny and she would boil them for me.
She never learned to drive.
In her Golden Years, she claimed a doll as her baby.
I miss you.

d/o James Henry & Frances Elmira "Fanny" McDougal Pittman
