The first time my Husband and I met Wilma and Jake. It was as if we all knew each other. Wilma took a shine to me. Madona Smyser and Steve are our best friends. Wilma asked Me if I was Madona's boss. We all laughed and we will never forget her kind giving heart.

I loved being able to pretty her up when I saw her. It meant more to me than it probably meant to her. I loved spending the time painting her nails and listen to her and grandpas stories. I loved dancing with grandpa as Jake dance with grandma to grandma and grandpas song. Those memories will forever be in my heart. Grandma will forever be in my heart. I will remember her hug that ended with a kiss on the cheek. I married into this family and Im so thankful for the time I got to be apart of it. I was truly blessed to have grandma love me like her own.
