My heart goes out to the family; we've been missing gran'ma for a long time now. Now, we know she's reunited with those who've so recently gone on before her. When I first met Anita's family, Gran'ma and Gran'pa told me to call them that from day one and I always did. I remember taking her with me to a place where I worked and got her the family discount because she told the cashier, she was my grandma!!

I remember snippets about Aunt Naomi from my childhood... In their backyard having picnics/BBQ'S.... Unfortunately we always lived far away from our family, but when we were together it was always so much fun!!! She talked more, louder, and faster than anyone I have ever met...and had the biggest heart to match!! Rest now, Auntie, go be with the family!!! See you one day! Love, Karen Sue. (She always called me by both names)
