Grandma, its very hard to believe that you're gone. A link in our family chain is now broken and it can never be the same. I know you're in Heaven hangin' with Geneva and the rest of your loved ones, but its hard not to be selfish and want you here still. I love you Grandma, miss you always.

My deepest sympathy to Marion's family. She was a dear lady. I used to work at the Doctors office where she was a patient. I loved looking at her crocheted creations. I have some of her pieces and will enjoy for a long time, especially the cross I have in my prayer book.
