I haven't seen grandma in quite some time, but the things I do remember about her always make me smile. Grandma always tried to include me in family activities. I remember taking a trip to Nebraska for a wedding, the family get togethers we had n August to celebrate all the birthdays cause there were just so many of us. The best memories I have is of the holidays, everyone gathered around telling stories of when I was younger. I will miss our time together love u forever grandma.

I was sure saddened to hear of Ms. Imy's passing. I worked with her at the courthouse and always enjoyed talking to her. I enjoyed the many nights out for dinner with Ms. Imy and other county employees, and Imy always said, when are we going to eat at Gill's again!
My sympathies to the family.
