I am so sorry about your loss. My prayers will be with the family during this time. Every time I saw her she was always so sweet and I enjoyed her company.

Granny will be missed by all that knew her. My fondest memories include her always being able to soothe any wounds I had, calling everyone "sugar" and of course her wonderful cooking. I will miss her dearly and take comfort in knowing the last words I said to her were I love you.

A special thank you to Simon for assisting her these past few years. We can never repay you for all that you have done to help Granny and Papaw. She was truly grateful for you being in her life.
