My inspiration, hero, and reason for just about everything I AM that I am. She was an amazing influence to myself and my 3 children. As I grew and had family we continued to visit from 420 miles away ever year to see she and grandpa as they hold the fondest memories in my heart, and my children’s. An era is gone, but never forgotten. You are home with my departed family and Jesus. I will miss you but am honored to be part of this family. Thank you grandma. Rest now for you have finally gone home.
We love you with all of our hearts and are so glad that you have finally gone to rest with Grandpa and the rest of your family. My kids will forever remember UP trips to visit…fishing with Grandpa…..the Dairy Queen for ice cream….but mostly spending time with you. We were blessed to have you in our lives and now you will forever be in our hearts.
