Grandmaw (as she always signed her cards because she thought the word should always have a "W") loved to be around her family! She smiled so much and said many times how good her life was. She was loving, friendly, hardworking, a good Christian-Catholic, and enjoyed a good conversation. She wanted me to call her Grandma for most of the 22 years I have been with my husband. I lost my 5th wonderful Grandma Monday morning. RIP Grandmaw Lillian and you will ALWAYS be in our hearts and minds.
