Love you much Granny thanks for everything you've ever done for me though I've told you many times. You will be well missed. I'm so happy to know you are with the Lord. Fondest memories of Granny are shopping trips Downtown in Lebanon when Lebanon was still nice. If I was around she always made me walk to Loehles to pick up her medicine. She's the first and last person I'll ever fight over cartoons and soap operas with.
