    Thank you to all our friends and family. My Grandmother had an amazing life and we were so lucky to have her. I’ll miss her laugh the most and when she’d ask me to hand her “her whatachmacallit” that was “over on the thing” it was like playing our own personal claw game 🙂 She was truly one of a kind. Thank you to Aunt Lucy and my sister Kim for taking such good care of her.
