Michele shared so many wonderful stories about Granny! While I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person I feel like I know her through the details of “life with Granny” - often hilarious adventures and antics that brought tears of laughter! She was full of vim and vigor and was so happy to see her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family but know she is at home with the Lord.
