I first meet Grandma GG when my son married her granddaughter. She was so friendly and full of life. She always made me feel like I was family. Her smile made me feel welcomed. Her laughter made me laugh. Her love made me feel warm and loved. I will miss you Grandma GG. You are in no pain and are the Angel you were meant to be.

I will never forget what a wonderful grandmother you are the best Grandma in the a world. Always so loving caring and beautiful. That time before you bought your house when you told me you had eyes in the back of your head and let me feel them and I thought they were really there. Such great memories with you grandma I love you so much. I will miss you every day you are my fairy godmother guardian angel looking over me in heaven.
