Dear Schannell,
I know you and your family will miss your Grandmother very much, but you will have so many wonderful memories of the love she shared with you. You are such a lovely person, and I am sure that you learned so much from her. What a joy to know that she's with Jesus and will spend her first Easter with our Savior! Love and blessings, Lois <
