Grandma, you are greatly missed. I went fishing with you and grandpa when I was 13 years old on gun lake. You and grandpa both helped me reel in one of the biggest largemouth bass I’ve ever caught. I’ll never forget that trip and all of the selfless things you’ve done for your family and grandkids ♥️♥️ I still use your knitted blanket daily. You were always an angel.
