Evergreen - Memories Letters
Good to hear from you and thanks for keeping record of all the great times we had at Grannies. I miss being home and smelling homemade bread Aunt Liz use to make
us every Sunday. After Aunt Liz died I moved into Granny's house to keep it up and lived there for about three years. The memories I have were always positive and
comforting. I use to fish across the street every afternoon after work and it was so relaxing knowing home was right across the street. Once I had cleaned up the pig pen and was going to raise a few pigs like she use to do, but never got around to it. As a kid Vicky and I use to play in that pen and feed the big pig she had in there. Aunt Liz would always fuss at us for hanging on the fence.
I miss Aunt Liz a lot and its not easy going back to Evergreen without them being there. Granny would always take up for us kids when Aunt Liz would fuss at us and I have to admit we would always give Aunt Liz a good reason to fuss. I now have Granny's iron bed set up in my room here in Baton Rouge that I sleep in every night and it's as comfortable as the first night Lea and I slept over. Wish the house was still there so we can go back and just sit on the swing and watch the traffic go by. Loved being out there and wish the house was still up so we all could meet there to cook and visit again like we use too. I miss that the most - being around the family every weekend eating homemade bread like we use too. Hope this helps some and I will write more as I think of things.
Have a great evening and keep in touch.
