All of my memories of my beautiful, wonderful, creative and talented Grandma are incomparable to any other person in my entire life. Her love, life lessons and values she taught me are priceless and will never be forgotten. As I look around my home I see my Grandma and all the gifts she made with her skilled gorgeous hands and it makes me smile. I used to always tell my Grandma "You are going to live forever." and you will in my heart, mind and soul all the days of my life. Thank you for your infectious laughter color and light that shines over me from heaven an will inspire me always. I love you so much and I will miss you everyday. Someday I will see you again in heaven but for now please watch over me and visit me in my dreams. Love Always Kristen

On behalf of The Andreotti and Bailey family we send her on her journey with " Love And Blessings."
