What a kind , loving and compassionate woman she was ! She always had the biggest smile and the warmest heart ever ! We became life long friends when I was a little girl ! They were a considered a part of our family !
She always welcomed us into her home and we always left filled with the best food and desserts ever!

For my beautiful Grandma, you had the heart & soul of an angel. You loved us so much. We are sad you're gone but all the memories we have of you taking care of us, your smile, hugs and your delicious cooking will stay with us forever. Everytime we would tell you we loved you, you would say back: "I love you more". Thinking of you alway, love your first born grandchild, Stephanie, Chris & Nicole
