You are very special people that she loved & talked about so much. God bless you and thank you again. Grandma was a beautiful, independent, straight forward woman. She loved her family, camping, traveling & meeting new people. She could turn a simple Hello into a two hour conversation and with that she was loved by those around her. She was a great friend to many but an even greater Grandma to me. She will be forever missed but never forgotten. You will always be my Nana. Love always & forever your Grandson.
