You were a true example of living one's faith and of putting family first. My children are forever blessed to have had you as their grandmother. Of all the wonderful memories I will carry of you with me, my most treasured will be of the day you introduced me to someone and told me afterward that you hoped I didn't mind, but that you had "upgraded" me from daughter-in-law to friend. Mind? It was my privilege. Thank you, my friend, for everything.
