My grandma was a wonderful woman never spoke I’ll of anyone that I can remember. She always found the good in something no matter what. Her advice was sound and her faith was strong. Growing up with grandma meant many hugs and endless love. As we all grew older and made it out into the real world I knew I could alway call grandma and her voice would calm me, her words of wisdom I would embrace as she always said it will work out just have faith. I wasn’t able to see her as often as I wished but she was only a phone call alway when needed. I will miss her terribly but she will live on in our hearts and mind and watch over us as our guardian angel. Love you grandma always and forever.

My Grandma was gorgeous from the inside out! My favorite memories were getting all dressed up for Christmas Eve dinner at her house,and a new outfit of course. As a teen, I asked her if I looked as good as Madonna in her red slip dresses and Grandma J said “well of course!” That year she got me a red slip for Christmas.... I loved it! I even wore it to work as a skirt at KB Toys, Metro on a Friday night!
She helped me with my strength of character & I’ll always love her for it! Smooches, hugs, & love, Robin
