My dear sweet little Grandma Violet was so sweet; I never knew my Grandpa H. He passed away before I was born. However, Grandma had a boyfriend ("oh phooey" when asked if he was her "boyfriend" or just companion), named Ray, who passed in 2000. He was like my Grandpa.
She used to feed the squirrels, all the while, telling them to "shoo, get away now", as she fed them! LOL
