My grandma was a wonderful lady who lived life to it's fullest. She continued working into her 80's as a bagger for Ukrops. She was very proud to have been in one of their commercials. We spent many weekends and vacations with her, drinking coca-cola, picking blackberries. Her favorite meal was breakfast and she made the best old fashioned fried potatoes and pancakes. She loved to draw and spent time with my sister and me teaching us about drawing. SHE LOVED SWEETS!! Several years back my phone rang just after midnight on New Years Eve. I was barely awake, getting ready for bed after watching the ball drop. It was my grandmother. She had taken a casino bus and was bringing in the New Year playing slot machines (cling cling she would call it). She never complained, but just kept pushing forward. I asked her one time why she didn't take it easy some, as she was always on the go. She said "I will rest when I am in the grave". So rest Grandma. May the wings of Angels carry you home.... Love you, Bobbi
