We asked Anedra, “If you could have sit down to a meal with 2 people, living or dead, who would they be and why?”
I would sit down with my late mother, she was my hero, closest confidant and best friend and I miss her terribly. I would also love to sit down with my maternal grandmother. I never new her as she passed away at a young age. My daughter looks so much like her. I wonder if their personalities match as well!
