As a little girl, I spent a lot of time with her on the farm. I would churn butter, stir the milk that would be sitting in a tank of cold water, to make it cool faster and help her make her delicious pumpkin pies. She would tell me how to make the filling as she made the crust. I was literally her shadow. She was a patient and loving grandmother and my goal is to be as good a grandmother to my grandchildren as she was to me.
