Grandma may your loving Godly soul rest in heavenly peace. Whenever I think of you all I can hear you saying is "Praise the Lord!" and "Let's Squab" I will never forget that summer my mom sent us to your house and all the fun we had. The delicious meals you cooked, the church outings and the countless laughter we had. Grandma you were a joy and a blessing to many. I know you are continuing your Godly love with the angels above. Me, my husband and our three wonderful sons love you always and forever. Rest peacefully sweet angel. Love your granddaughter Marlo,
