Grandma, I am grateful that you are free from all of the pain and suffering of this world, and that you have been reunited with Grandpa, my Dad, and all of the family members who have gone before us. I will miss our weekly dinners. I will have to find a whole new list of items to order on Amazon. And, I will miss the crazy stories from the crowd at "the Club" or the latest book on tape. Rest well, and I'll see you again some day. I love you.
