How often a memory comes from that far in the back that keeps coming over and over until you finally pay attention . In this case making something that everybody loves, in Grandma's skillet.
Great poem!

What a beautiful tribute to Grandma Kilgore. You brought back all the good memories of my grandmas, and those simple ways that we've managed to complicate a whole lot more than necessary today. Your writing on this one was superb. Congratulations!

This is a gem - a piece of social and family history - there should be the 'ingredients' herein for a good 'meaty' biography -look forward to reading more !

Well, I can see why this was a winner. Engaging read which brought memories of my own grandparents, as I expect it did for many of your readers. I love the fact that the pan will continue to serve in your own home. Congrats on the win

Everything about this post makes me smile. I can smell the tea cakes and hominy biscuits and even felt a little bit hungry as I read. It was rich with good details and thoughtful description, about her knobby, arthritic hands running over the pan, and the description of the pan itself. Also full of sentiment.

This is exactly the type of writing I was hoping to find when I joined this site. It is descriptive and makes me feel connected to the story. I can identify with the speaker and it makes me feel like I was a part of it. Thank you for the read.

Yes back in the day my great grandma had a special frying pan she used to cook her fried chicken in it was the best ever and that was the pan she used and never another.

Beautifully heart-tugging. How we treasure some things, but it takes time to realize how very dear they are. That little pan was your grandma's life story and every time you look at it, you will remember. Just great! Happy New Year and build more memories for your children to have and cherish.

Wonderful story, very moving and resonates with anyone who shares similar fond memories of family.
I think the wife's reaction would be a nice addition. The story makes it sound like she was unaware of the tin heirloom. Was she expecting it to hang in the kitchen? Or was she surprised?

    Thank you for your feedback. Honestly, my wife just thought it was "ugly" and didn't want it hanging, despite the story. I decided to leave that out. lol
