Granny was such an amazing woman. She was so strong and always made sure her family was taken care of. She was our rock and always there for her loved ones through the good times, the bad times, and those times that we drove her nuts ( and I'm sure us grandkids really pushed those buttons good). She loved us unconditionally and always made sure we knew it. Granny was naturally a very nurturing woman and always made sure that anyone that came to visit never left hungry. Evan though losing our Granny is heartbreaking, I am so glad she is finally reunited with Papa, the love of her life, her other half and with my dad her baby boy Barry. She spent her whole life loving and caring for others, now it's time for her rest and find peace. I love you Granny with all my heart. Thank you for always loving me and always being there for me giving me your love , strength, and guidance through life and through the hard times of losing dad. I will cherish every moment, every talk, every hug, and every laugh we ever shared. You will forever be my Granny and I will love you forever and always !
