Cathy & family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your grandma. Even though she lived a nice, long life, I know it is never easy saying good-bye, you just got to remember that she is in a better place now. Hold on to all the many, wonderful memories and know that she is watching over you all! Hugs to you and the family too! - Connie & Tom Huntley
