I never could figure out how tartar sauce was used to make your sugar cookies so awesome. Did you really use tartar sauce or was someone messing with me? Miss you Aunt Pat. I know you are happier with Uncle Bob now.
Grandma...i will forever miss your homemade biscuits and your thoughtfulness for others. I love you!!
