MOM, I love you so much, and I hope I helped you live the remaining days to your fullest! I do know you lived the rest of your life the way you wanted to. Despite what anyone else expected of you!!! You were determined to live your life your way! I am sorry for that, because I wanted you to live longer than that. And I know you could have accomplished that if you wanted. It is what it is, and I LOVE you forever! I will miss scolding you, and cleaning your closet, for everything you took in from "everyone" I love you MOM!!!!!

Grandma, words cannot express how much your family loved you and how sorely you will be missed. You lived a full life and had the pleasure of watching 6 children, 12 grandchildren and 7 great children come into this world and grow to the wonderful people they are today, and you were part of that. Rest in peace and we will all see you again! We will never forget....

Love your granddaughter Cheryl
