Grandma's House, thanks Amy







There are so many WONDERFUL things that
have happened since blogging.

This is one of them. I read Amy's blog,
"Lifes Small Treasures"
I saw that she lived in the state that my
grandma used to live in.
I wrote her and asked if she lived close to the town.
Well they had some business too take care of and
went and found my grandlma's house from the
address and took pictures and sent them to me.

I have VERY FOND memories of this place and have
not been there for over 20 years. My grandma
is in Heaven and NO her house nor yard look
the same, but OH what a blessing to have them and
I am so appreciative for Amy doing this.

Thank you again, Amy.
Deby

Deby, What a beautiful, thoughtful thing for Amy to do for you! Your grandmother's house reminds me of my Dad's House (he is now deceased) but his house was very similar to your grandmothers, only the addition to his was on the back...a large family room. It is wonderful to have memories of those we love. :) lol!
