How do I begin sharing a single memory when a thousand memories come to mind. She is unforgetable! The strongest, sweetest, smartest, best dressed, Christian, giver, dancer, talented seamstress, funniest, cleanest, best biscuit maker and darn best step grandmother a girl could ever ask for. She truly is and will always be unforgetable! I’m sad to see our world without her bright smile and joyful laugh. She loved life. God bless my family. She will always be in my heart! - Nancy
