“Gram” was an angel on earth, a very selfless and beautiful person that always saw the best in others. She was a very grateful person, felt very blessed and loved to laugh. She is everyone’s favorite person and best friend. A very caring and compassionate person, always wanting to help in any way she could and always thinking of others above herself. Mom/Gram, we feel very blessed to have been a part of your life, we will miss you greatly, think of you often, and see you when we get there. Mom’s final request was for cremation and a party to celebrate her life.
