A week ago, we lost Gram, the most wonderful person in our lives. She taught us so much - like love, strength and compassion. She also taught us to have fun and laugh often. I feel so fortunate to have had her in my life for so long, and that my children had the chance to know her and love her. She will forever be with us in our hearts and our memories.

We love you so much, Gram!

Saying goodbye to you was the single hardest thing I have ever had to do. But I am thankful that you are now free of pain and with Dad, Donna, Curt, Laura, and all of your siblings that left us before you. You were always more than a Mother to me - you were always my best friend, and taught me how to be the best friend to my daughter. I will miss you much....your loving daughter, Jacki

Words could never express how much I will miss my Gram. She lived her life so full of grace. She taught me so much, but most of all how to love. She is the reason for so much of my happiness. May we all cherish her for ever and ever. Gram was truly unforgetable.
