I am thankful to be able to say that grandma Rose was my grandma not a blood grandma but that didn’t matter. She was my grandma. I spent numerous vacations with her and enjoyed every moment of our days together. She always had a smile and always made me smile Grandma Rose was always happy she was our sunshine every day. She will always be the best parts of my memories may you rest in peace. ❤️❤️❤️
