There are many things that I can say about Grandma Boop. The love that we shared for each other was very special. I am so thankful for the memories and the special things that we shared together. The best memories I have of us together is when we would have dinner together with her on sunday. We should play games together share a laugh and sometimes we would bake cookies together. When I was younger we would go see her on Halloween. I would be in my costume and I remember the pictures that we used to take together on Halloween. The memory that means the most to me is my graduation party from high school. She was so proud of me and it meant the world to me that she was there with my celebrating one of the most special days of my life. grandma boop you will be in my heart everyday and I will think about you everyday of my life. With love always and forever in my heart your grandson Nathan

Dear Patty-please accept my sympathy on the loss of your mother. We lost my mother-in-law in Oct. She was 93. Even though she is longer suffering-you still miss them dearly. Peace be with you and your family. Joanne
