The most beautiful, kind, funny, talented woman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She loved her life like a 4 year old little girl opening Christmas gifts every day. And her beautiful home showed it. She affected everyone that met her, especially me. What a celebration she is having now with her husband and of course our Lord

I have so many memories of my grandmother. They are all my favorite! One in particular is the year I bought her a book by our favorite author. We loved reading the same books by the same author and I got on line and purchased the authors very first book that she had written which you could no longer find in stores since it was out of circulation. She loved it and it was a fun memory. Love you Granny...
