Correction she was born December 10th and she did not graduate.
She was my very loving and beautiful grandmother. She loved to read the Bible, play and sing Christian songs, and she would pray for hrs. I remember it well as a little girl sitting in her, watching and listening to her. She was a very loving woman. Grandma did so much for me including raising me for 13 yrs. She will forever be missed and loved. The memories I have of her fall from my eyes like rain drops on roses. Bitter sweet. As much as she will be missed and loved, her pain and suffering is over. Rest easy my beautiful grandmother. I love you!
