We have so many great memories together. Some of my most recents include Gram meeting Addison and outfit shopping for my wedding. In normal gram fashion this included many phone calls where you needed to understand directions to each place we were going despite the fact I had gps on my phone. I’m going to miss our frequent phone calls, your singing on my birthday (although I got lucky and have a recording of it from 2019 because I was in an exam when you called), you being there for me every time I have to take an exam and pushing me to pass, and your desire to get an iPhone (despite your technology skills). You were such a sweet, kind and loving grandma. I will always miss you and love you so much.
