I’m so sorry to hear. This lady was nothing but pure classy. She was always so nice and sweet. She was pure! One of the sweetest people I have ever met. I first met her(when Denise and I became friends) when I was in middle school. I remember thinking she had to be the sweetest grandma anyone could have. Heaven is lucky to have and I was lucky to have known her. My heart is with all of the family and friends. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻😇
Thoughts and prayers,

My Grandma became a Great Great Grandma to our five grandsons. She loved all of them and loved spending time with them. Our favorite lunch spot became Steak and Shake so she could treat them to half-price shakes after 2!
I try and create the same memories with all of them that I have with her and my Grandpa. I wish everyone could be so lucky to have a Grandma like mine.
