We are sorry to hear of Meta's passing. It is interesting that she outlived all her siblings. She will have a happy 96th birthday in heaven. Sympathy to the family.

I will miss you, Grandma. I take comfort in knowing you are reunited with Grandpa in Heaven.

I will always cherish the Sunday suppers or holiday dinners around your table. Grandpa's BBQ or your fried chicken and always with noodles, peas, corn and plenty of desserts. Lemon and chocolate meringue pies and chocolate chip cookies. I know you will have a hand in it whenever I make your recipes.

I love you.
