    My Grandma is an angel now. She is watching over all of us. She was such an amazing lady. As bad as it hurts that she is gone, she is no longer suffering. I will remember all the great times I’ve had with her. From going to eat breakfast on Sunday mornings, staying the night with her, calling her to tell on my brothers, going to the Sportsmans Club and so much more that I probably couldn’t fit on here. She was the all around greatest Grandma I could’ve ever asked for and she will be deeply missed..
