  1. I love you and I miss you Grandma. You devoted your whole life to your daughter, grand daughters and great grand daughters and we will never forget you. Thank you for everything! I love you. Love, Gina

  2. Dear Friends, what a lovely picture. I’ve been feeling so sad since Steve called. It doesn’t seem real. What an emptiness in the family. Mom felt sad too and asked me to send her condolences. She said she feels she lost a dear friend. There we so many years we all shared. We’ll be sending a donation to the ASPCA. Love, Charlotte & Elizabeth.

  3. We are saddened to hear of your loss. She was a sweet person who always had a quick smile and obviously enjoyed her family. May she enjoy eternity with Leo.
