Aunt Rhonda & Uncle Russ - I am thinking of you today as I do most everyday. Grandma really was a unique lady! I will never forget her laugh or her sense of humor! It was like no other. I will never forget her Apple Squares for my Dad and how much she loved to tease with him. They were truly so funny together!! I know they are celebrating in heaven and happy to be with one another again. I bet it is hysterical and maybe they will have a few apple squares for all of us. Blessings and love to all of you!
