    Grandma Taylor, I have so many wonderful memories with you! From going out to the back yard picking berries. Making pies. We always used the extras to make a little tiny pie. We would go on adventures on the city bus. I’m sure there was a puspose, but I was unaware. All of the drivers loved you. They were always curious what you were baking that day, and were they lucky enough to get some! I will always cherish the time I spent with you. Thank you for being my grandma. I love you so very much!!

    Well Grandma, I never did get you to teach me to make rolls. In your honor i made a meal you loved to cook and made my first rolls. You would have been proud they were delicious. I will miss you forever…….I will think of you a lot so many things I do and cook you taught me. You did a good job, I am so much like you busy all the time and always worrying about doing for others. I could go on and on. I love you from the bottom of my heart… so sorry you had to leave us……..
