  1. Grandma you will truly be loved and missed for all the remainder of my days. You were such an inspirational woman and I truly admired you. Thank you for all you did for me my entire life. Knowing that you are at peace now and with grandpa and your sons and mom is what is helping me through losing you. Forever and ever always in my heart and mind. Love you to the moon and back a trillion times.
