Dad says his fondest memories of his Mother was when he sat his School C. She took his place in the cowshed so he would not have to  milk the cows before going to school making sure he had plenty of sleep before his exams. Every day he arrived home from school there was a tin full of freshly baked shortbread.
I love the way Dad smiles when I hand over a tin full of Jessie's shortbread not to mention the cheeky grin on his face when he shakes the empty tin at me!
