Grandma was always there for her grandkids, and had such love and joy for each one of them. Growing up it was always a challenge to see when we would grow taller then her. She is the only woman who would pour another glass of drink after I would split it at every meal. Grandma had the famous saying of " I mean it" long and drawn out. That all us grandkids thought was just so funny.
I Love You Grandma and can't wait to see you again. Say hello the Grandpa for me.
Love,
your Mr. Nobody

I was blessed to call this special woman my grandmother for the past 20 years when I married her oldest grandson. She was the most loving person I’d ever met and I will miss her sense of humor. My love and prayers go out to the entire family.
