Sorry about your grandmother’s passing. I’m glad you were able to visit one more time and be there with her. You have lots of memories of her and your grandfather to enjoy.

Take care.

I remember when you told mom and I you wanted a lime green Kia sole to have in your driveway. Our daily Saturday trips to church and out to eat afterwards will always be something mom and I will cherish forever. Until we meet again my friend. Love Bunny and maryellen your church family from St. Gregory
P.s the husband misses his cheerleader.
