We miss you. I was looking through lots of old photos today and was reminded of so many wonderful memories growing up: going to your house up north, playing with the cousins outside, exploring the woods, picking out yummy Schwann's icecream from your freezer, campfires with s'mores, laughter, family holidays. I am so thankful for those memories.

I'm so thankful we spent time together last April. I'll always remember your advice that you gave me for Scarlett :).

You will be missed, but not forgotten. We love and miss you, Grandma. See you someday in Heaven. We'll take care of Grandma for you.

Uncle Mick and family,
I'll always have very fond memories of spending time with my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins at the house in Ada. Summers spent at the cottage in Bitely were filled with fun, laughter, and great times. Memories will linger, long after this sadness subsides. It's not goodbye that we say, but more like so long, we'll see you soon!
