In Loving Memory of

Kate Hughes Glaze

Nov.22, 1907 – March 12, 2001


Oh how we miss her buttermilk biscuits,

Her home made butter,

Her apple jelly,

Fresh eggs from her own chickens.

Her coconut cake.

Her creamed corn.

Fresh vegetables from her garden.    

She made everything from scratch

and never used a recipe.


Kate making biscuits              OH HOW WE MISS HER LOVE AND WISDOM !
