You always hear that Grandmothers are the rock of the family. That was most definitely true in this case. She wasn’t just the glue that stuck us all together, she was the one that built us. She built us to live & love & she built us to last. We all love her so much & there won’t be a day that goes by where we won’t miss her. But because of her love & guidance throughout the years, we will be okay. It’ll be hard without her for sure but little pieces of her life in all of us because she loved us all so much.

Please pray for our family in this time of sorrow.
