    Granny was sweet every time I had the pleasure of interacting with her, which was only a few times, but she always had a smile and was ready to cook up something for Jen and me. It was always “nothing fancy” to her, but a delicious 5 course meal for 2 hungry college students. I know she will be sorely missed.
