Grandma Frog you were such a light in everyone's life. I will miss you but I know I will see you again someday. Thank you for being part of my life. Your family inherited your heart of gold and I am blessed to know them.

To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.

To Lorayne's family. I worked with your mom in the 70's when we had a small hospital and then at Henry Mayo. She was always a very special lady and her family was very important to her. Rest in peace

I loved her. I'll never forget the conversations we had, and her sense of humor. Her outlook on life was unique. If everyone thought the way she did, the world would be a much better place. G-Frog 4 Ever!!!
