Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. She will always be in your hearts, your mind and your life. She will live through you. Please know you will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
It would be hard to imagine Grandma's not looking down on us from heaven, considering all of the lives she touched here on earth. You can feel her love even now, in the warmth of our memories and in the new emptiness in our hearts. Let us remember all of Grandmas love and learn to live our own lives with that same love and kindness.
