i will always remember your laugh and smile, trick or treating at your house at villa west park , that you just lived around the corner from my Grandma - Dorothy Forrest , you were a good friend to her and she thought a lot of you. you are up in heaven together and can visit with each other again. You will be missed terribly by all you love you. God loves you too and we will see you again.

Grandma this is a sad point in the lives of everyone in the family. Your children and grandchildren will greatly miss you. During the course of our lives we have been greatly impacted with little more than your presence. You have established yourself as the matriarch of the family. We all miss you and love you

I know that grandma is no longer with us. It's hard to accept the fact that she is no longer here. It feels as if she went to the store and will return. There are many good memories that I could share but we would be here all day. So all I will say is that we all miss her and love her. We will one day meet again and enjoy eternal life together.
