Granny,we will miss you so much.You brought laughter and many memories to all the family. YOU,were .the "Queen'' !!! I will miss my shopping buddy as you so loved to go shopping with me. We had many good times--Canton,Vacations,and seeking out new restaurants. Oh,how you loved muffins,pie,chicken and most of all the mexican food.
