"Grandma" will always be remembered for her hugs. She gave hugs out to everyone and anyone who was willing to receive them. I am blessed to have learned the value of a good hug from her!

She became my Mother - In-Law June the 23rd 1972. We drank coffee, her favorite morning beverage, she was always there for me and helped each time I had her grandbabies. She loved Jesus and now she is in Heaven with Jesus for eternity...I will see her again!!
