I love you Grandma. I always looked forward coming home from school to steak and swiss sandwich, milkshake, peanut brittle, or anything else you made, before we played checkers or dominos until it was time to go home. Ill miss watching the muppets movie, the Chicago Bulls, and the OU games, but most of all ill miss you, and all the little things you did for us that meant so much. Tell Grandpa i love him and give him a hug for me. I miss you guys, and you will always be my domino partner.
