    I can’t believe we have to say goodbye so soon. You were the best grandma anyone could ever ask for. Your door was always open, your freezer always full of ice cream and freezies, the endless sleep overs and cinnamon toast at bedtime…in bed! My Grandma was the best at letting the world know about my accomplishments, even in her last few weeks managed to tell the nursing staff all about me. Her love for everyone was endless and she was the most selfless – always doing things for other people, always doing thoughtful things to bring a smile to your face. I’ve heard a lot about the little things she’s done in the past couple weeks and it makes me happy to know she lived a life that touched so many people. It’s through our memories she’ll live on forever. I will forever miss you Grandma ❤️

    Dee – our deepest sympathy. I smiled at how she liked to cook. I remember when we had the butter tart bake off against her tarts and Rachel’s tarts at work. Mom’s were warm out of the oven and won hands down!!! Hugs and love to all of you!!
