Gram was a great person. She has always loved her family and friends unconditionally. She was also caring, giving, kind and stubborn. She never wanted anyone to worry, and was the first to help.
I’m happy I got to spend time with her over all these years. I wish I could’ve spent more but I am grateful I got to know her better in my adult life.
You will be missed by many.
