2 years without you and I still look at this page every week. I miss your smile, laugh, hugs, the bomb food you used to cook us, your love for others, and so much more. Although I know you are by my side all the time, Life just is not the same without you. Please continue to send signs of you Grandma and tell Grandpa to stop trying to prank me. It scares me sometimes even though I know it is just him HAHA. BTW, I got that tattoo finally just for you. The next tattoo will be for Grandpa. I miss and love you so much, until we meet again Grandma.

I am so sorry for your loss. You have my sympathy. I remember Vicky from when I was very young and would come to work with my Mom, Dianne at Walker & Williams. Vicky was so nice and I remember she always had candy at her desk. My prayers are with your family.
