I forgot to talk about the jam!!!!!!! I have really happy memories of picking fruit with Kathy and then making them into the most delicious jam. Our senses give our memories a visceral dimension and I can bring myself back to the smell and taste of that strawberry jam. I am so grateful for Kathy and how wonderful she was :)

Kathy was my “adopted” grandma and I am incredibly grateful for her. I have so many fond memories of visiting her and Don and it truly felt like being with family when we were with her. She demonstrated unconditional love to these kids from next door and you never would have known that we were not actually related by the love she showed. I am grateful for all the time spent with her.
