I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Grandma. She was an amazing woman, and always had a hug and a smile ready for you. I don’t think she ever knew a stranger. I will fondly remember the times that we spent together, mostly during my childhood. She reminded me of what it was like to have a Grandma, as I had none of my own. But even after a long period between visits, sometimes years, she was still ready with a smile and hug. Always welcoming, always glad to see you. May she be at peace and rest now, and may the families find comfort with each other and God’s love. She will be deeply missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
