You was always good to me no matter what I did. I was so grateful and blessed to have you a part of my life and knowing that my children Anna Tyler and Brandon Wilson had you as her great-grandmother Steve Wilson your grandson was the love of my life and still is and that you was the most inspiring person in his. Granny you will be missed but never forgotten your memory will always be with us as you watch down each and every one of us. Until we meet again may you rest in peace in heaven and we will soon see each other as a family all of us will.
