I feel so blessed and grateful to have had you as my grandma. You were such a big part of my life, you helped raise me & you were a big part of the woman that I am today.

I remember all the wonderful trips we used to go on, the sundae parties, making Christmas cookies with you, listening to Big Band music and Frank Sinatra with you, & watching endless hours of sports together.
You gave the best little kisses and hugs & I always felt safe and loved by you.
You will always be in my heart

Scott "I feel so lucky that I got a chance to know you and be a a part of your family". I will miss your hugs & having snacks with you". Loved watching football with you cuddling on the couch.

Love you www

You were so loved, Grandma. I have pieces of you in my home...your sewing bench, ceramic figures.... and I think of you everyday when I see them.
Please embrace and keep our dad safe, your beloved Terry. You meant the world to him, and to us!
