Thank you Gram for all you did – you were an AMAZING woman who touched so many lives! There are so many memories that I will cherish; the holiday dinners, the cooking talks and advice, all the wonderful places and trips that we took, the stories you told us about your childhood at bedtime when you tucked us in and getting to work with you in the family business, that is a legacy we hope to continue and make you proud of. From me trying to teach you to swim at the age of 71 and just the simple times when we went out or on trips together, everyone thought you were my mother and couldn't believe you were actually my grandmother. The young playful vibrant woman that you always were, how proud I was to say you were my grandmother! Even though you had a long blessed life, it still wasn't long enough, you will be missed every day!
I love you and miss you so much Gram, your granddaughter - Cheri xoxo

My great grandma, although an incredibly hard worker, was always full of laughter, fun, and enjoyment of life. I would only hope that we can all take a break from our busy lives occasionally and have a little fun, as she taught us to do.

Thank you, Mom, for carrying a heavy load, lifting all of us in the process, for your endless generosity, for inviting us along for all the fun, the music, the dancing, the trips, and of course, the shopping. Thank you for sharing the fruits of your labor with us and for showing us to work hard, stand tall (no matter how short you are) and to look beautiful all the time. All my love forever, your devoted daughter.
