Remembering my Sweet Precious Grand~Mother as one of the best Women I ever knew. She was like a Mother to me & I love her so very much. Rest in Peace in the arms of Jesus as this will give me the comfort knowing that you are in heaven happy now. I will miss & think of you every day. I love you Granny
