My Dearest Grana, My heart is broken for us left behind. I have no doubt you are with your loved ones that left us long ago. Keep an eye on us. You touched so many people with your kindness and love. That will carry on my heart. Until we meet again. Love you Grana.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Lynda, when I think of your mom I think of her smile. I remember how fun she was to be with, especially when you and I would have our birthday parties together. May God’s grace give you and your family peace during this time of grief.
