My grandma had such a kind and beautiful soul. She was so pure and so sweet. She cared so much for others and was always willing to help those in need. Her smile and laugh were contagious, she could light up a whole room. She was very involved with my siblings and I, in fact I saw her and my grandpa almost everyday. I loved spending the weekend with them, it was my favorite thing to do as a kid. My grandma was at every sporting event, choir concerts, graduations, you name it and she was there. She was one of my biggest supporters throughout my whole life. I was very close to my grandma she still means so much to me. Some of my favorite memories with my grandparents were when my sister Victoria and I would go camping with them. We’d fish, go swimming, go on boat rides, we’d go shopping, play Mexican bingo as well as other board games and of course get ice cream. We would even go with them to jam sessions and listen to them sing and play the guitar. As I got older I still loved to spend time with them, we’d go to get lunch and go to the movies we’d still go shopping and simply spend quality time together. I loved the time I had with my grandparents those memories will last a lifetime and I will cherish them forever. I’m saddened by my grandmas passing but am at peace that she is once again reunited with the love of her life my grandpa Bill. I will keep her memory alive forever. Rest peacefully my beautiful angel. I love you always grandma. Love Diamond.

I will never forget how caring, beautiful and funny my grandma was. I would pick her up and drop her off for her chemotherapy treatments and would even sit at as many as I could with her while my mom would check in on us because she worked there as well. My grandma and I had a bond that no one else could give me. She will forever hold a very big place in my heart. My grandma is the most beautiful angel in heaven. Rest easy my beautiful angel 👼🏼❤️
