I am truly heartbroken that you are no longer here with us. I will miss everything about you and cherish every memory that we shared.

I take comfort in knowing I will see you again someday. Until then I will carry you with me in my heart.

To my Kentucky family, Granny always said she was so blessed to have all of you and I feel just as blessed that she did. You are some of the most amazing people and always took such good care of her. She always felt loved. Thank you!

To our Ohio family, you are equally amazing. Every time I spoke to her she would say that she was blessed with her Ohio family that always came and brought her up for visits. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

So while she always said how she was blessed with both her Ohio and Kentucky families, I know we all can agree that WE were blessed to have her.

We are so very sorry for the loss of Granny.... We will forever hold our memories of her forever in our hearts. She was such a special lady to us.
