Notes

STORY: MY MOM SAID MY GRAND FATHER TRAVELED ALL ACROSS THE UNITED STATES AS AN ENGINEER HE BUILT THE SCHOOLS FOR THE GOVERNMENT. SO WHEN HE CAME TO SAVANNAH WHERE MY MOM AND DAD LIVED AT THE TIME HE WOULD TELL MY MOM THEY WERE COMING HOME AND MY MOM WOULD ALWAYS COOK A BIG HOME COOKED MEAL FOR THEM IT INCLUDED FRESH VEGETABLES GOOD CUTS OF MEATS BREAD AND ALWAYS A HOME MADE DESERT.USUALLY IT WOULD BE A POUND CAKE OR FRUIT CAKE. ON ONE OF THE TRIPS TO SEE MOM AND DAD HE SHOWED MOM HOW TO COOK SHRIMP GRAVY WHEN MOM ASK HIM WHERE HE HAD GOTTEN THE RECIPE FROM HE ANSWERED MOM STATING THAT HIS MOTHER HAD GOTTEN THE RECIPE FROM HER FAMILY. HE LOVE MOM TO COOK TRADITIONAL HOME MADE MEALS FOR HIS VISITS HOME. HE SAID MOM'S COOKING REMINDED HIM OF HIS OTHER'S COOKING. GRAND FATHER DIED TWO YEARS BEFORE I WAS BORN. SO ALL I HAVE TO REMEMBER HIM BY IS THE STORIES AND MEMENTOS.
