So one of the facilities she was staying in after she broke her hip kaelyn, the girls and I went to go and visit her, this was a few years ago. Her roommate at the time wanted the lights on and she wanted the lights off in the bedroom. Neither one of them very mobile to be getting in and out of bed. Told kaelyn and the girls to walk fast out of the room as our visit came to an end and I reached my arm back around and turned the lights off and we ran out the doors. All I could think is she was probably laying there laughing at her roommate thinking she won since she now had a nice dark room :) all those years of taco bell she bought us I knew I owed her one :)

Grandma,
You were larger than life and the heart of the Lauer family. Your presence will be missed dearly but your love will live on forever! Give grandpa a smack on the back of the hand for me when you see him and let him know we love him and that he better take care of you up there, just as good as he did down here. Heaven is blasting some polka music tonight!

Love you,
Your grandson, Randy
