I have fond memories of my gentle, sweet grandma & the times that we spent Easter’s and Fourth of July’s in their back yard and neighborhood. She was a supportive and consistent image of Gods love to those around her, marked by a unique kindness that gave people a desire to just be near her.
I am lucky to have known her my whole life, and lucky my husband could spend quality time with her, I know she would’ve loved our baby son, Walt, so well and grieve the absence of her presence. I thank God she is no longer suffering & in His perfect peace.
We love you grandma.
