My Grams was one who was passionate & exuded LOVE beyond words . She was always there for our BIG moments in life from birthdays, holidays & sporting events to graduations & weddings. She was there rooting for me. When ever she wanted a personal moment with me she would whisper her words & hold my hand. As an adult I loved to listen to her stories of her past ❀. As a child I have so many vivid memories of swimming in the summer, she loved the water and family time at many parks & festivals .
πŸ’•πŸ’•She loved her sweets πŸ’•πŸ’•
Grams you were one of a kind & loved by all that had the pleasure of meeting you. You were strong & independent . Until we meet again .... I ❀ U Grams!

My grandma would pop up over to my house whenever she would like unannounced . They were always the best surprise visits I ever could have received from anyone ! She would never come over empty handed no matter how big or small the item would be . And she always brought a ray of sunshine ,laughs, and very much needed heart to heart conversations . It was like she just knew when a surprise visit was needed. I was always so astonished by how strong her faith was and stayed throughout her life time of ups and downs .She never let all of her heart aches and pains darken her out look on life . I will remember that very strongly for years to come. Her faith never wavered. And my life will forever be so much more enriched by having her as my grandma. I also have always believed she had a super power . I believe she passed this super power onto my father as well. This was as follows, she would be certain to leave an impression on every living soul that she came in contact with every day .Good bad or indifferent , you were going to remember her.Her most favorite words of wisdom were that a smile never cost anyone anything and to
always kill them with kindness.
Rest easy now Grams & know you lived a long and very prosperous life surrounded by people who adored you ....
