"Life is short...eat dessert first!" Grandma loved to eat dessert first, yet served salad with every meal. She wouldn't smile for the camera unless you told her to "laugh". She loved all things that had feathers . . . Cardinals, hummingbirds, butterflies, and peacocks. She loved to to go to the symphony, doodle flowers on paper, drink her green tea for breakfast, eat her rice krispies cereal with one pack of sugar substitute and skim milk for breakfast and a little snickers usually within reach when her "sugar would get low".

She helped me with my math homework when I was in school and taught me how to crochet, embroider, color, pray, and most importantly appreciate the Catholic Faith and all its beauty. She was so kind to everyone and a glowing example of a holy woman.

I love you, Grandma, and am praying that the angels lead you into paradise and that our Lord grants you eternal peace. Amen.
