Mom, there is no way to share just one memory. There are so many. You loved your kids, grandkids and greats with all your heart and showed them how much every time you saw them. You had such a beautiful soul and I know we will meet again in heaven. I'll do my best to carry on your spirit while I'm here on earth and love the family as much as you taught me to do. Rest easy Mom, I Love you, Sue

Mom was always good for a smile and a hug. I will miss both, but never forget either. I love you mom, see you on the other side

Walking into grandma's house as a kid, we always knew the cookie jar would be full for us (and empty by the time we left, because grandma never said no when we went for yet another cookie).
She always made us feel so loved, and I will forever treasure that feeling. I'm so thankful for the countless memories, I only wish we had more time for a few more...
I'll love and miss you forever, Bronco Grandma. Thank you for being the absolute best.
