Mom, I have written this three times and can not get it right. The gratitude we have for you is enormous. The love we feel for you is magical. You took on extra kids and people when they were in need. Bubby Crandall thought it was his home as well as the four of us. We will remember all the good times from the past, and thank God for having you to share them with. I was not always the daughter you wanted, but I did my best. I have finally "grown up" only to late to appreciate all you did. I am thankful for it now. You have a beautiful smile and laugh that carried us thru our years, as teens and adults. We will miss you. Especially me. I was looking forward to come to Michigan to see you again. But we was there when God took you home. You will enjoy your family members where you are. We will see you someday. Much love mom and we will think of you often,

P.S....Maybe Aunt Bonnie will get a good laugh, and I loved her laugh, with me misspelling the word "goodbyes" in my first memory message. A good way of looking at it would be my Uncle Fred got a "good-buy" when he married Aunt Bonnie! She sure was a treasure. I am so glad my Uncle Fred and Aunt Bonnie got to spend some time and have fun in Florida with my Mom and Dad.

Grandma Bonnie never failed to lift my spirits once I saw her smile each time we would visit her. I’ll never forget her generosity and caring nature. Grandma loved all of us grandkids. She always kept a beanie baby collection and toys under the coffee table for us to play with while we were visiting. Grandma always made the best dinners for the holidays, and I always loved showing up to see grandma busy cooking the meal. I’ll miss Grandma, and I’ll always love her.

Our family was blessed to have Bonnie as our Step-Mom. Most of my memories were from my visits home for Christmas and other family get-togethers. She made the best macaroni-and-cheese and sugar cookies ever. Bonnie was very thoughtful and always willing to help anyone in any way. We’ll all miss her laughter and smile.
Thank you Bonnie, for being part of our lives .❤️

Mom, I am grateful for all you have done throughout the years. You raised four kids who loved you more than you’ll ever know. We knew your love for us.
I remember my childhood like it was yesterday. You always made sure us kids had everything we needed, clothes, hot meal and you never complained picking us up after school, for sports programs. Your cooking and baking will always be a highlight for me. More than anything you served the Lord with all your heart and God gave you a place in heaven.
Thank you for all you did for us. I love you!

My beautiful grandmother. My biggest fan. My angel. I was so blessed to have you in my life. I can still hear your voice saying "Hi Ry!" One of the only people I let call me Ry. I knew when I heard "Ryan" you meant business. You never judged me through my wrongs. You made me the man I am today. I will cherish every moment we had together. Please know Ava and I will always have you in our hearts. I know you're in a better place now and that's all I've ever wanted. Till we meet again. I hope I made you proud. I miss you already. Love always, your grandson. (Please have a rhubarb pie waiting for me) 💕
