She was the best Grandma. She did things she didn't have do to. She help my mom raise me and my sister for a few years. Her and my grandpa help people when the need help. I remember one year they bought us a Christmas tree. I love you Grandma. Say hi to grandpa. I'll see you someday

There are so many memories with grandma. She was the most kind, compassionate and loving lady I have know. What she lacked in stature, she made up for by the way she treated others. My heart aches because I will miss her terribly. I find comfort in knowing we shall reunite again someday in Heaven. She was such a wonderful example to me. I always told her I wanted to grow up and be just like her! Grandma, I always saw "Jesus in you!" Thank you for being such a Blessing in my life!
