My Oma, I was your first Grandchild and always felt special and loved so much by you. Fifty cent coins you gave me so many as a yound child. Later in life still wanting to sneak in gas money for just visting you and trying to help with your house. Loving my children so much. Your memory of our birthdates and your beautiful writings on my cards good memories. But most of all I'll remember you several years ago sharing with me why the Lord has kept you on this earth for so long when you just wanted to Go Home. Reason was for us to have you and for you to make us feel good. Now is your time to revisit your children that you have lost and rest. Continue to enjoy your wrestling and working the crossword puzzles. Take care of my mom now. Love you for all you have ever done for me and my children.

She lived a wonderful life of 97 years and we all are so very blessed to have shared it with her. Every visit with her was never enough time but it was always the best. My children and grandchildren will miss her tremendously but never will we forget her love, laughter and complete happiness she gave us all, these memories will live within us always.
Heaven has gained a beautiful angel, may she Rest In Peace, our most precious Oma/Nanny.
