My grandmother was my light. When I was a child I would remember my father telling me we'd go visit grandma and I would light up in excitement because I know it was going to be a great time. One of my fondest memories with my grandma was when she made her famous sugar cookies, she'd place a Hershey's kiss in the middle of it and the taste alone was worth much more than a thousands words. Her incredible baking skills aside, my grandma was truly kind, an easy going soul and stern when she had to be. Everyday I will cherish her memory and everyday I will strive to make her proud even if she isn't here physically to see me succeed in this life. I love you grandma, more than words can ever express.

My grandma was absolutely beautiful and amazing, and I cherish so many wonderful memories I have with her. She will be so missed by so many, including myself and my son, her great grandson Jameson Jack Stewart. I love you so much grandma, and miss you so much already. Thank you for being such a wonderful light in our lives and teaching me kindness, compassion, unequivocal love, and so many other wonderful traits that I am lucky enough to have and share with you. I’m so proud to be your granddaughter and your memory will live on with us in our hearts and minds forever. Rest In Peace to my sweet grandma and thank you to everyone for your kind words, prayers and wonderful memories shared with her.
