|Grandma in her younger years|
|Left to Right: My mom, grandma, and uncle|
This week marks 7 years since my grandmother’s transition. I miss her dearly and I want to briefly share some of my fond memories of her. Ruby Mae was born in Baton Rouge, LA in the 1920s and married at 16.My grandmother bore 16 children and practically raised them herself. My mom is her youngest child. As a child, my cousins would all spend the weekend at my grandmother’s home. Skating in the basement and seeking in the attic to look at all the holiday decor. We never had a dull moment. Family barbecues and random dinners, we knew how to throw a party! One of my favorite meals from my grandmother was her famous seafood gumbo: crab legs, shrimp, rice, sausage…my my how I missed that dish! I also remember my mom doing my grandmother’s hair. I loved that memory because my grandmother would yell if my mom pulled her hair. LOL
