Mommom you are so special. I have so many memories. But the one i get tickled about is when i always told you "i want to sing to you mommom" and you said "no that is ok" lol. I also enjoyed when i came helped you on the farm and when we used to go break boxes down at a pharmacy. You are going to be missed by soooooo many. Heaven sure has gained a beautiful angel. Love you mommom. I know you will always be with me. Love your granddaughter Kelly.
