Notes for Molly Metter:
My aunt Molly made the best borscht, so they say. I could never eat it.She always had a smile.I have one of her cut-glass candy dishes which I treasure.She lived with Rosie and Bob until she died.
This is from Rose's daughter, Kathleen:
My story about my Grandma Molly Kaplan:
What I remember about my grandma was she was not only the best cook, seamstress, and grandma, but she was my best friend.She made the best food and no one knows how she made it cause she wouldn't tell anyone.I remember her cookie jar of the monk which was yellow,it always had cookies in when we went to visit,I have that cookie jar to this day because it holds so many memories.We would sit for hours and talk about everything, the family, look at pictures and when she got sick, we would talk about her dieing.She wasnt scared or worried about it,she just said "these things happen".She loved to laugh and she loved her family.She would go on the rides at Disneyland with her great grandson Greg when he was little.The only real regret that Grandma had was that when she was little, she stole a dime from her mothers purse to go to Woolworth's to buy a pair of shoes for her doll.She always felt bad about that.She loved her bubble baths and every morning you would find her at the table with a cup of her tea, and a slice of rye bread with cottage cheese and strawberry jam.She would sit in her rocker and read her Readers Digest book.Her favorite color was blue.I miss my best friend.She was the most special grandma and I am so glad I knew her.I can still hear her saying to me "Kathy,if you would just do the dishes after you finish eating, you wouldn't sit on the couch all night worrying about having to get them done!"What a wise wise woman.
