What we remember most about "Granny " was her endearing love for her Granddaughters, Samantha and Natalie. She would meticulously ponder over what would be the most appropriate gifts for them.
And Granny enjoyed every moment she had with them and would give them her undivided attention.
She will be greatly missed by us all.
