I have so many wonderful memories of my grandma!! When grandpa died in 1982 I went out to live with her for a while in Columbus. That lady did not take bull from anybody or me . When I got out of line she gave me the what for lol!! But Grandma was the sweetest lady to be around . I live in Florida for about 30 yrs I got a wife and son. And I wish I got to spent more time with her. But I know she is in heaven with grandpa and my mom. She is probably saying right now quit making a fuss with me and get on with your lives !! Amy , Trevor and I will miss you and always love you
