she ate her peanut butter and jelly sandwich...

oh!, she said, "and some ice cream!"
and then...
She passed away--Friday, right after she ate lunch..
Grandma Eva was 97.
She still taught Sunday school on Sunday mornings at 10 at the nursing home.
She could still read books.
She still enjoyed yummy food.
She could still tell you stories about her childhood and life.
She was probably the most positive person I have ever known.
I never heard her say anything negative--except one time.
She could almost have served as the definition of the word, "sweet"
There are many people around here who will say the same words about her if they
have the chance.
How perfect! :)
Andy's mama was there when she ordered her lunch.
Grandma Eva was sick and she was in the bed not sitting in her wheel chair where she was most days when she felt well.

Grandma Eva did not like for people to cry a lot.
She told me one time that her mama was a really emotional person and when
she was little girl her mama cried all the time.

I guess that means I am going to stop typing now. ;).
Hasta luego Miss Eva! :)
