Grandma, I will miss you so much. I have enjoyed all the phones over the years, and will cherish my 2 sets of 5 generation photos. My most enjoyable moments with you was visiting for a week at anytime during the summers. The family reunions we use to have, and of course just spending time with you. I loved to see the sparkle in your eyes when family members would come and stop for a visit.

Most of my memories of grandma are from when I was a kid. A few I think back on are playing games with her, going to White Pines, Christmas on thanksgiving, her red candy and telling me to put a jacket on when it was 70 degrees in Texas
