Aunt Skeet loved blackberry pie!!! She and my husband Larry accidently mixed up their eye glasses. She thought she was having a stroke because she couldn't see. They laughed about that for years. She enjoyed talking to me about my shiitake mushrooms that I grew on logs. She really enjoyed Life!! Loved her and will really miss her.
