I very well remember your precious Miss Abernathy. For many years she sold me artichokes for my artichoke pickle which was put up in January or February. She would not only dig them, but she also washed them so well that I didn't have to wash them before I cut them up to be washed and put in the jars. I have missed seeing her over the last two or three years since I really don't do the pickling any more. She was such a sweet and MOST interesting lady.
I hope she had an easy passing. I am sure GOD smiled when he saw her coming into Heaven.
I know you will miss her.
