Over the last two years I got to get to know grandma and the way she would light up a room and turn anyone's frown upside down. The way she would interact with you always brought joy to your heart. Grandma you will be missed for now, but we have eternity to look forward too. Until we meet again rest with the Lord Jesus and be at peace.
