George W. Sutton and Eva Mae Campbell Sutton are my paternal grandparents. They were in their fifties when they adopted Dad.  George died when Dad was a child. Grandma Sutton lived with us.  Grandma would rock us and read stories like Grimm's Fairy Tales to us. She was a woman of great patience and love.  When I was little, she would stand me on a chair beside the stove to stir the gravy.  She made silver dollar pancakes for us, and taught me to knit and crochet when I was 5 years old. When I was a little girl, while it was raining, one day, she taught me to make mud pies.  To her it was OK to play in the rain and get all wet.
