Oh my, this is wonderful! Quite lyrical and very touching. A lovely, lovely piece of writing.
I enjoyed reading this. I loved the cycle of life so descriptively portrayed with the grandmother-granddaughter relationship!
This was such a sweet story--excellently written.
Absolutely...excuse me, my tears are falling and I cannot see to type. Words can't describe this fantastic piece anyway; Just SUPER, A+. Creative! Surely a Blue Ribbon Special. This entry was done by a talented Writer.
I loved this story! The title grabbed me right away. Beautiful symmetry in the repeated sentence ("The cookies had too much salt") as the granddaughter grows up from a two-year-old to a mom, always returning to those salty, teary moments of baking with her grandma.

Great descriptions, too! I especially enjoyed "plenty of milk and giggles" and "arms full of baby." I could see the grandma and her granddaughter together through all stages of life (and death). Moving message as well. Excellent job!
So happy the Judges agreed with my analysis! Congratulations!
Absolutely STUNNING! I am so glad I didn't miss this gem. A BIG congrats!!
Congratulations on this win - you deserve the placing you got with the creativity and sweetness yo uput into it.
