Rest in paradise Grandmother! We love you! You are truly missed. My favorite memory is Thanksgiving 1990 when we were all together as Grandfather died. That experience helped solidify my wanting to be a gerontologist. Thank you for being my favorite nurse. Thank you for being my favorite tap dancer.
