Grandma Kennedy

My Grandma, Mary Francis (Lehman) Kennedy, would have been 99 years old today, if she were still alive! She passed away in February of 2007 (I was expecting Brooks in April/May). She lived her whole life in the Markham/Stouffville area, and was a very sweet lady. She was not known for her great cooking per se (ahem, don't eat the meringue!...there's no sugar in it!), but there were a few recipes she is family-famous for, like her beef barley soup! She outlived her husband by 24 years, and after he passed away, she became quite the world traveler. She would buy a  silver or gold sugar spoon as a souvenir from the various places she visited, and I have a few of them, now that she is gone. She is dearly missed! Love you Grandma - {eating a ju-jube in rememberance;-)}
Here is Grandma Kennedy, with her Great-Granddaughter, Kennedy! Kenna was the  23rd great-grandchild, and since her, there have been 17 more born, with 2 more on the way, that I know of. I have a LOT of cousins!
