Grandma we miss you so much. I was so looking forward to spending time with you when this pandemic was over. I couldn't wait for you to see my new house. Also wanted to tell you Isiah was going to be a dad and you a great-great Grandma. I am happy you are with grampa now and no longer sick and free of all pain. I do feel you with me in my house and I know you and grampa will be looking down on your soon to be great great grand child. Tell grampa we miss him and send our love. Ps I still have the 5 dollars and will save it forever. See you and grampa in heaven ❤

Grandma Gray’s legacy will live on, not only in her children, grand children, great grand children and so forth, but also in her love for us...and in her quilts, her dumplings and fudge, her SMACKS on the hand when you were “playing” Chinese Checkers. I always loved how much she found peace in simply having a coffee on the swing outside or eating cheese balls on HER recliner. I admired and will never forget her determination in finding me the perfect Barbie dress for my 6th birthday. Lastly, I’ll miss how she joked around with Grandpa, “Oh Lordy Galloway!”. I know they will be laughing at us up there together, forever.
I love you both so much, till next time❤️
