Thanks for being a grandma that was such a big part of my life. I'll never forget the laughter we shared, the sleepovers at the condo, your cinnamon mentos, the dog bone surprise that we still talk about, your last trip to Hope4wildlife where you fed the deer, I loved seeing the smile and excitement on your face. I can remember the old Richland house, Ronnie coming home in his truck....WOW the memories that rush through my mind. You are so loved. I'm so happy you made it home...and I shared one of the last hours of your life, by your side with my mom and Susie Q!! Love you grandma!! I'll keep looking for banana pie and I'll know you are helping me make miracles happen!
