Very proud to say this amazing lady was my grandmother and played a part in shaping my life. To know her was to love her. She was kind and gentle, stubborn and strong and the hardest working person I ever met. The harshest thing she ever said was “mercy sakes”, and we spent many hours as kids making her say it over and over. If you want to see her again one day you better make sure you go to heaven because there is NO doubt that is where she is. I miss you Me-mer-ner, and I would not trade the last month of my life for anything.
