Grammy, Besides your sense of humor, one of the things I'll remember the most is how you beat me at every card game! You'd teach them to me, then as the game went on you'd give me a wink and I knew it was over when you played your next hand :)

Love you

You were definitely one of a kind! While a loving and caring person, you also had a silly side that makes me smile when I think of you. You cackled with delight at the simplest things in life and there are moments we spent with you that will always be in my memories. I admired your zest for life and I strive to have that enthusiasm myself in a world that seems so stressful and hectic.
Thanks for the memories Grammy....Love Marci

God has promised:
Though grief may overshadow you, it will not consume you. Though sorrow fills your soul, it will fade away.

Sorry that I was unable to meet you and yours, but it seems like our Lord had other plans for us while here on earth. I am planning to look you and the family up when I arrive on the happier side of life in heaven. Love and prayers for the family.
