I will miss and love you always grandma. Wish I was able to say goodbye, but now you can finally be at peace. Aunt Dee Dee I wanted to thank you for your open arms, thoughts, and love. I'm glad all the siblings and most of the grandchildren could attend. I wish you and all the other family members the best and hope someday we could all hang out together like the old days. Love you all, David.
