    I walk by it whenever I am going to get groceries remembering everything that was there. I know the house was remodeled and wonder what it looks like these days with the people living there now.

    Fondly

    My grandparents lived in a large Victorian house on the corner of two streets downtown. I loved to visit because I was very close to my grandmother. Now that I'm an adult, I realize it's because we are so much alike, and I'm proud of that. Her house always smelled so great...

    My father's mother lived right next door to me.  As a young boy, it was a fun way to get out from under my mother's thumb for a few hours.

    Grandparent's House

      While she lived there for only about three more years after my grandfather died, I guess I always thought of it more as my grandmother's house.  He had it custom built and had the contractor put in many of the touches that she had long wanted - the built-in...

    The Heart Of My Childhood

    Everything that was good about my formative years revolved around my Grandma's house.  I have so many happy memories at her home...and now that she is gone...there is a large chunk of the light in my life that has forever gone black.
