My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time of sadness and grief. Granny did a lot for myself and my two kids (her great grandchildren, Austin and Brandon Ford). I will forever be grateful for her love and support and she will be missed everyday.
Thank you for everything Granny, you will never be forgotten and I will miss your talks as we sat around the dining table laughing, sharing and discussing life, love and politics. Love you to the moon and back. May you Rest In Peace.
Love always,
Angi4ord XOXO
