My Great Nanny was about 80 years old and she was always quite and very opinionated. But one thing that she was great at was fixing biscuits and gravy. It became a family recipe and everyone would always fix it! We still do to this day.
About 4 or 5 years ago my great nanny died in the hospital. She was very old and just died of natural causes. All of her belongings were given to all her kids and grandchildren. My mom got her iron skillet that she used to make biscuits and gravy in all the time. It was very heavy and hard to work with at times. But one night my mom fixed biscuits and gravy in that skillet because all of ours were dirty. So she was fixing it and me, and my sister were setting the table. A few minutes later I walked over to the end of the table and at that same time my mom walked up beside me and we both just stopped at started at each other and gave each other a really weird look.
Well you know how all of your grandparents had a certain smell that just followed them and you could recognize their smell anywhere... Well right between me and my mom was the corner of the table and her smell was right there standing right between us. I know it wasn't a little coincidence because there were 6 kids in that house and it smell nothing like food and dirty diapers! We knew right away that she was there with us... It was amazing to know that she was there.
