I'm so sorry to hear that Mrs. Waskey has moved on. Please find some comfort to know that she is in God's arms and house, and back into Mr. Waskey's arms. They did make some beautiful children inside and out. Please let me know if I can help in anyway.

Memaw was not just my grandmother. She was a role model in my life. Whether memaw and I were just sitting watching Spongebob or Courage the cowardly dog, she always had a smile on her face. From Ocean City trips to baking all the cookies you could ever imagine it was never a dull moment with memaw! I can hear her now “yeah! i’m back here” when we would often visit her at her home, and hearing the popular talk show “Kelly and Ryan” in the background. Even though she is not here with me physically she will always be here with me as my forever guardian angel. She has peacefully passed to be with Grandad. I will miss her deeply, but for now I will live through her. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Rest Easy beautiful.
