Mama G was a special lady and a wonderful mother in law. She had a soft sweet southern voice and I can still hear her asking her grandchildren, "What do you need darlin?" She grew up in Savannah in the home she shared with her mother and her great aunt who remembered the Civil War. You can imagine that the old aunt was not too fond of any Yankee but she thought Papa was alright.:) Mama G was very close with her mother and her sister, Willilou as well as her extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. Unfortunately Mama G's father deserted his family and this was at a time when single parents were not common. Granna, Mama G's mother, took great care of her girls and both grew up to be lovely ladies.
When Mama and Papa G got married they were excited to have their own family and with six children they had a happy and busy homelife. All these great grandchildren of theirs would be a joy and delight to them. I am so glad that I met Marvin and I am a part of the big Grimm family!
