You will always hold a special place in my heart you were always so kind, loving and made me feel like family. I loved the homemade jam you would make and all the years we shared as Tammy and I grew up from kids to adults. I have so many memories of you I can not just pick one. I will hold you close at heart forever and I love you grandma! Forever missing you Diane
