You were the best Grandma ever. I learned so much from you about life, I credit you a great deal for the man I am today. I am very thankful, and was very blessed that I was able to spend so much quality time with you as I grew up Grandma. You will forever be in my heart, mind and thoughts. I was so lucky to have such an amazing role-model as you growing up. I love you, and will miss you dearly Grandma.

Grandma, I often find myself thinking of my younger years and all the time that I was able to spend with you and Grandpa. I have many many memories of you and I will cherish them for the rest of my days. I Love you Grandma with all my heart. I will see you again one day at the great fishing hole in the sky.
