Antedotes for Arrangements

Anetdotes at Arrangements

My cousin and I helped my Aunt shop for an outfit for our Grandmother to be laid out in. We picked out a beautiful purple (Grandma’s favorite color) dress, and my Aunt wanted shoes to match. We found a very pretty matching pair of sandals, but my Aunt said, “The heel is too high. Grandmom can’t walk in them!” We put the shoes back and continued shopping with my Aunt until she found a pretty pair of “comfortable” shoes to match Grandmom’s dress!
