My grandma taught me everything I know about grace and kindness, dignity and thoughtfulness. She was courageous, strong, hard working and dedicated to those she loved. She put others first all her life. I am a better person because of the things she taught me and I am thankful that she is at peace now from the disease of dementia that took all those things from her - that she is with grandpa and God in Heaven.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. I remember the trip to England and many a gathering of the birthday club I was lucky to share with my Mother and with yours,
