I am sorry to hear about Grandma. She is now with our Lord and savior and is with her husband Donald, and 2 sons, Mike and Eddie. I always will think of her as my mother-in-law. She was a very sweet lady that had a keen sense of humor. She was so much fun to be around and I will miss her dearly. God bless you all at this time. Sending my love from Virginia.
