She used to keep us on weekends and she would get up early Saturday mornings and she would watch Saturday morning cartoons! Plus we would bake chocolate chips cookies with her! My favorite memories with her is when the family would get together at her house for Christmas! Some of the best memories!

I remember the times that me and my cousin Kit would always ride our bikes to Wal-Mart even when we weren't suppose to and always on the way back we would visit our great grandma and she would always greet us with a smile and snacks and we would visit for a hours and she never once told Grandma Pam that we rode to Wal-Mart 💞 She was always such a great women and never made you feel judged
