Yesterday would have been GRANDMA’s 92nd birthday. When I moved back to Los Angeles in 2004 I started a new tradition where every December 18 I had GRANDMA’s favorite ice cream in her honor, Baskin Robbins Pralines ‘n cream. (Actually her favorite ice cream was really Ralph’s kona coffee but they stopped making that years ago).
Randomly, the Baskin Robbins I went to was having trouble with their freezers and the ice cream was kinda melty. You’d think they would want to fix this right away, right? Apparently it was going on all week. Strange.
I think it is little things like having ice cream that would never be my first choice flavor that keep my GRANDMA’s memory alive. What are the things that you do to remember a loved one?
