I was one month shy of my 13th birthday when Great Granny died, so I knew her well. She could always be counted on to give each of her great grandkids an entire pack of Juicy Fruit gum when we visited. I remember she dipped snuff and there was always an old vegetable can at her feet, tucked under the sofa, for her spit. My mom has entrusted me with the last two pieces of Great Granny's crochet work. They are in good shape, considering their age. My sister and I will be sure to tell her great, great grand daughters about the woman who made these lovely pieces.
