Grandmas are wonderful

This is my Grandma Wedekind.  Boy, do I wish I had those cheekbones. I never really knew she had such beautiful brown hair as sadly, I only remember her with a grey perm.

I have so many wonderful memories of this woman, I can't even begin. Suffice it to say, she was such a fun-loving woman, made the best potato dumplings, was a great traveler, made a mean brandy slush (adjusted for kids, I think...) and knew when to put a spoiled rotten kid (me) in her place.

Oh, how I loved to spend time with her.  She taught me so much about gardening, flowers and nature.   She'd take us for long walks in the woods pointing out the water spring, the names of plants, the deer paths.

Just a great Grandma and friend.

I so miss her.
