I remember when I was young I would jump all around the room and my mom would try to get me to stop but I couldn't sit still, Gran Gran would tell me, "why don't you sit still?" And she would tell me that sometimes you have to sit still, and that its just apart of life. She would say, " I do it all the time," and from her I learned that you just have to be patient sometimes. You see that's the kind of person that gran gran was, a mother figure, teaching lessons about life and how to be kind and courteous to others, I don't think I would be the person I am today without Gran gran; I am so happy and proud to say that I knew such a woman as she! She was a true inspiration to me , especially with her walk with the Lord, I think that's why she was so nice, because the Holy Spirit was always with her no matter what.
She outshines the stars with her bright nature, she makes the roses jealous of her beauty , her heart is sweeter than the pies she creates with her elegant hands, her voice is more pleasing than the red birds that she loves so much, there shall not be one single Cardinal that pass me by that does not remind me of her.

Dear, dear Granny!
Through you an entire clan was birthed... children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, in laws and maybe a few outlaws... no words can describe who you were and are to me in every aspect of my life. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you. That is how ingrained you are in the fibers of my heart. I would not be who I am today without your and grandpa's love and care in my life and the great example that you set before me. We love you so very much and can't wait to see you again, whole and completely out of pain.
Love always, Meet you on the other side,
Rhonda and John Wilson
