Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

This is my Great-Grandpa Elmer. He lived to be a 99 3/4 years old. I think it is interesting when you are little and when you are old age is told in fractions. He was a scientist and very exacting. He loved his family and taught by quiet kind example. He loved to sing and play the piano and did so often. He kept a garden and an orchard until he died.

He loved his Sweetheart, Melba. They worked hard for each other.
