Wow. Just wow. This an amazing, sentimental piece. VERY nice job! I love the descriptions, and the simplicity of the scene. I love the voice, and just how the whole story rolls. This is definitely one of my favorite stories on Figment!

This is so beautiful and nostalgic... it's also very relatable, all of us can see our 'grandmas' in the main character's place. The tone used to describe how she feels and how she remembers Howard is perfect, and this is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever read. I think you should definitely continue this, I'd love to read further. Anyway, congratulations on such a great story, it's a wonderful piece and quite a tear-jerker!
