Grandma, I am so thankful to have shared so many wonderful memories with you. You were just at our wedding, looking as beautiful as ever in Avila Beach. You loved to spend time at the beach....We are going to miss all the holiday dinners, and special times at your house, and the silly things like Christmas gifts from Mrs. Santa every year or the hardest Easter Egg hunts in your backyard, known to man. I love you, and I will miss you forever.
