We say goodbye today to Grandma Husing. So many memories come to mind from when we were growing up. Phyllis and I used to be over there a lot and drive around in this old standard truck to go feed and water the horses. Seems she was always in the kitchen cleaning up from one meal and making the next. I remember the stinky can of scraps left under the sink to feed to the dogs. But most of all I remember that she always made us laugh so hard that we begged her to stop. I stayed with them one summer on the tree farm in Ohio and am so glad now for all the time I spent with her and memories.
Of course I did not get to see or talk to her much after moving to Texas, but I will treasure every memory I have. Goodby Grams
I will forever remember the few weeks during the summers we would spend at the farm. The fun we had going fishing together and all the love she provided. I remember catching a fish and Grandpa put it in the kitchen sink so when Grandma went to get hot water from the sink she was splashed by the fish. She always made sure we had more than enough to eat and always cared for everyone. The fun and the jokes and all the care will be missed.
I have the fondest memories of our times together. I remember playing follow the leader, riding the horses, not being allowed to drink my chocolate milk until I finished my spaghetti, hot cups of tea with dry toast, hours of playing Yahtzee. I could go on an on, there are so many wonderful memories that I will cherish forever.
I will always love you and miss you.
