Belated Birthday Wishes To My Grandmother Grace

July 6th was my grandmother Grace's birthday.

Born 123 years ago in 1893 to Katherine Gallagher and Andrew Daly in Wabasha Minnesota.

How I miss sitting at her kitchen table drinking ginger ale and eating cookies. As a child we lived about 2 blocks away.  I would call and tell her I was on my way to visit and she would wait on the corner for me.  Sweet loving woman that I wish I could sit with one more time.


Picture is grandma Grace and Grandpa Day first row and her brother Wayne Esler and his sweet wife Mary.
