    From the time I was born, my grandma was always there for me. She and "Pop" helped me chart the course for my adult life. I'm thankful for all the time I was given to spend with her. She will forever be with me but I will miss her immeasurably. I love you Grandma, always. To my family, we've suffered her loss, but we will be touched by her forever, not only through memories but surely by repeating her famous sayings . Much love to you all.
