I'd like to share a memory that always cracks me up. There will be many who share this memory, as it happened at Mom and Tom's wedding. Mom and Tom hired a chef to make everyone breakfast. The chef was making omelettes and waffles for everyone, and she was taking orders for omelettes at the time. When she got to Gramma's order, to everyone's surprise, Gramma asked for fruit and whipped cream in her omelette! Everyone around her, including the chef, kept asking her, "Are you sure? You want fruit and whipped cream in your omelette?!" Gramma insisted! That is, until the omelette arrived. Gramma was horrified by the omelette! "Who puts fruit and whipped cream in an omelette?!", she asked. To which everyone around her burst into laughter! The mistake was suddenly clear, Gramma thought she was ordering a waffle! In perfect Gramma form, she joined in the laughter!
There is so much to love and remember about Gramma, but I think what I will remember most is her sense of humor and the love she always gave! She will be missed, but cherished in memory! I love you Gramma!

I will miss our phone calls to catch up on everything from politics to family. We met Nancy 32 years ago and we became family living next door to each other.
Rest in peace Dear Nancy, you will be greatly missed. We will always treasure the wonderful memories.
Love Always and Forever,
Ed & Rose

Nancy was one of my dear friends who always use to tell me growing up “Mommies know” in which I never really understood until I became a Mommy! I considered Nancy to be one of my Mommies who never judged me she loved and treated me like one of her own in which I am forever greatful! Rest In Peace friend I will miss you but I cherish our memories and I am blessed to have found friend like you! I love you! Kitty
