Dear Gram, I'm so happy I have known such a wonderful woman for the last 30+ years! I'm sorry I didn't see you as much as I should have in the last few years. That didn't mean I didn't think about you. I'll never forget you or Pop. I'm happy I got to enjoy the chocolates you made, root beer, and you brought that wonderful orange tea from PA. I was looking through my recipes today and I came across some lemonade tea from you. On the top of the paper I wrote "Gram's lemonade tea, GOOD STUFF". It brought tears to my eyes and does right now. You were one of the finest women I've ever known. I'm happy I knew Lin over in IRAN and got to know you and Pop. You will missed soooooooooooo much. Say HI to Pop for us and to Ed too.

It has been an honor to know Dick and Elnora. They were both such caring and wonderful people. I will always remember Dick calling her Babe.
