To my loving grandmother.
Thank you for teaching me the little things in
life. Thank you for taking me to college and getting me on track. I will never forget that. Pap and you were always such a
laugh on a Sunday afternoon. I have such fond memories of your good heart and of our conversations on the swing on the porch.
You were loved.
Your granddaughter, Kama
love you Gram and will miss you. You and Pap left me and Kam with wonderful memories. It's a shame what happened when
you had to sell the house and move away, but I want everyone to know that not only did you have two granddaughters who loved
you dearly, you had a very caring step-daughter, step-son and two wonderful son-in-laws and a daughter-in-law. I look forward
to seeing you and pap(Ralph) not (Harold) in Heaven someday. No matter what anyone has said in passing times, we were your
family too and loved you just as much.
