Goodbye G'ma

Yesterday early in the morning Bruce's grandma passed away. Our farm is connected to hers and we farm her farm. We are going to miss her very much. It is not only sad to  losed her but we are now grandparent-less. If you still have grandparents, be sure to hug them and let them know how much you love them. They are truly very special people! I have learned so much from mine and from Bruce's.

G'ma Fisher loved doing word puzzles and I will miss her phone calls asking me to help her solve a puzzle she couldn't figure out.

Bruce's g'ma LOVED poems. She even wrote a special one of my boys. Here is the last poem e-mail she sent me on Dec 7 (she loved sending e-mails!)
Hello God, I called tonight
To talk a little while
I need a friend who'll listen
To my anxiety and trial.
You see, I can't quite make it
Through a day just on my own...
I need your love to guide me,
So I'll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep,
 My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they're bound.

Give me faith, dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.

I thank you God, for being home
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.. !!!!!!!

Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.
So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, God, I love You, too,
And I'll call again tomorrow!

(G'ma doesn't have to "call" now as she is in God's presence....even better!)

Then on Dec 8th, she sent me this recipe that she said a gal that works at the assisted living home made her and was really good. I will have to make it.
(I am copy and pasting it just like she sent it to me.)

Corn pie
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon flour
1/2 pound shedded cheese
1can corn drain
1/2 can evaperated milk
1 egg
1 onion chopped fine

Bake in regular crust ina glass pie plate to see if bottom is brown
it doesnt give the timebut like pumpkin pie MY guess
There are sveral recipes and a cracker crust fr come.
One has hamburger and tomatoes
One ir Philadellfa [sp]
and more

Only 1 spoon sugar , i have't tried it may be calorie wise, the corn ia sweet, too.
