Corey,

I think I am the only one left on the planet without a facebook account so I can't 'like' you there but I love you lots here!

I emailed you (twice) with some ideas.

Your Friend,
Deborah

Love your blog! you know when you "lose" your favorite blog? I am so glad that I found you again!

I liked you on facebook, and I might be really tired, or a little stupid, or maybe both, but I am trying to follow you..not sure where to do that at.

My Grandma and I were very close. She passed away 2 months before I had my first daughter. The greatest memory I have of my Grandma is watching her create. Watching her love what she did and always willing to share it with others has shaped my life. Her belief in herself and her talent has shaped me into the mom, woman, wife and creator that I am today! She was fabulous!!!

Thank you so much! Tausha... You can add yourself as a follower at the bottom of this page... Your grandmother sounds as if she were a beautiful woman... Both of my grandmothers missed meeting my little ones, it's too bad because they would have loved each other so very much. xoxo

I "like" your FB page and am a follower!

I never knew my Dad's mom, but I remember writing letters with my other grandmother... I so wish I still had some of those to remember her.

I wanted to share that my favorite memory with both of my grandmothers is staying with them on the weekend and "camping out"! One of them is still living and I cherish my time with her now so much more that I'm older. My boys get to make memories of their own with her... and that is really special! Thanks ;o)

Hi! I "Liked" on Facebook. One of my grandmothers passed away from cancer when I was one year old, so I don't have any memories of her :( But my mom tells me she was a hardworker. She washed and ironed laundry for the neighborhood and took good care of her mentally-handicapped son. I can't wait to meet her one day :)

I'm in awe of your motivation. I, too, would love to do a 3-day someday... I've lost so many people to cancer...but, luckily I still have both of my grandmothers. Although they live far away, I do have great memories with both of them. One that sticks in my mind is picking blueberries in the woods near my grandmother's house. We would bring them back and Grandma would make a blueberry pie out of them. Looking back, I'm sure she had an extra supply of blueberries since the ones I picked probably weren't pie-worthy! :) (P.S. I liked you on Facebook too and am now a blog-follower)

I liked your fundraiser on facebook and will share with friends for sure!! Cancer took my grandma at 73 years old - she was a fiesty little lady with red hair. I don't think there has ever been a better love story than my Grandma & Grandpa. I don't know how he lives without her....Thank you so much for sacrificing your time, talents, and efforts for the 3 Day! I cannot wait til the day that the cure is found! =)

Hope lots of support comes your way throughout this journey....

My fave memory with my grandmother is when my sisters and I would go over for "sleepovers" and have her and my grandpa all to ourselves. (in a family as big as ours that was rare) Wed spend all day in the pool and end the day with a giant pot of mac n cheese all peppered up. Even though my mom is now gone, I'm so glad my little ones still have their "super grandma" to watch them grow.

Hi Girl. I have wonderful memories of my Grandma Batsch in the kitchen! She was a superb cook, and I'm sure that's where Nana got the cooking bug. My other Grandma Walker, Mopsie, was quite the seamstress and knitter. I have a small blanket that she knitted from small scraps of yarn. She was a very frugal woman, and instead of throwing small amounts of yarn away, she would save them and make something!
