This is hard because you have seen over the years her dedication to seeing things finished. The earlier years should’ve been tiring and the latter years easy, but she didn’t complain. She always made you feel welcomed. Always loved the visits because they were filled with laughs. Will miss her laugh,opinion and her lack of tiredness. Always left with my belly full of good cooking. Thanks for the memories and passing on the art of cooking to your children. Hug the family for us.

I am who I am because of the woman that raised me, and she was the amazing, strong woman she was because of you. You were a great example of a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I am so thankful that my daughters were able to get to know you. I will always remember your tenacious spirit, your wonderful laugh and you love most of all. We will carry on your legacy with pride. I love you so much and I am so blessed that God gave me you to be my grandmother. I will miss you.
Love you, Angela
