Affectionately known to me as “Mama Duck” from a very young age, she took me under her wing when my Mom went back to work.
When my Mom and my Dad would tell me no,
I would storm out of my house and when asked where I was going my response would always be...
“I’m going to my “Mama Duck’s!”
Rest In Peace. I will cherish my memories with you and keep them close to my heart!
May the family find peace and comfort knowing she is home with Our Heavenly Father and reunited with “Daddy Duck”, and Grandma and Grandpa Grant!!! ❤️
