Grandmother was an incredible Woman so ahead of her time. I admired her, loved her, & will greatly miss her. She raised a wonderful son which has made a phenomenal Husband to my Mother & Father to me and my brothers. I remember when I was growing up she loved being an audience member to any dance events she could attend that I was in. I always was so glad to have those moments with her. I know she loved dancing & now she can dance to all of her hearts desires. Rest in peace Grandma I'll see you in heaven someday. Love always your Granddaughter
