Granny was like a 2nd Mom to me. I have lived with her and she with me. Granny had a special way about her, ie singing with her head phones on from 5am til Popie got up. Then she would run about like a little butterfly making Popie his coffee and toast. Never missed a day for at least 40 years. When she came to my house in FL. She enjoyed walking around the the yard with Josh. She and Popie took Josh to get his first hair cut. He had to look like a boy she said. Then when she came to stay a month with me in TN, I would hear her singing again. Loved it.
Granny loved her game shows, and General Hospital.
She was a wonderful woman and will be truly missed. But I will see her in Heaven.

The two memories of my grandmother is well when I was 9ish and my brother was 8ish we got into our grandmother's car and my brother put the car in reverse and we back up into a bush and then my brother takes off. And even though our parents were mad not our grandmother she just laughed and wasn't mad. And the second memory is visiting my grandmother when I was a little girl my grandmother would show me the cape and the beautiful places it was going back in time with my grandmother and she's going to be missed. I love you grandma

My grandmother was the most genuine, kind, and loving person I ever had the privilege of knowing. I can remember spending 3 days out of every week with her and my grandfather when I was about 7. Every night at dinner she would remind me “You have to be part of the happy plate club to get dessert”. When I would get home off the bus she always put a snack in the cabinet for me, just one....She knew I’d eat them all. Im so happy my son Rowan got to meet her. I am heartbroken that my daughter Lydia will never be able too. But my Grandmothers genuine kindness will continue in me and them. I love you Grandma. You are always loved and Forever missed.
