Tribute :Grams, you were so full of love and life, and laughs, laughs, laughs! Thank you for all the love and so many special memories. You showed your love in many ways, but food was one of them. I never left your house empty handed and am forever grateful for how you cared. ❤️We all know where my cheekiness and sass comes from; I am your granddaughter. The wit and banter you brought to the family was contagious. You had such fire and a gentleness to you. Growing up we had such great memories of sleepovers, morning breakfasts, trips to Mccdonalds for chicken nuggets, trips to the park, and camping at cultus lake (my favourite). That time we had is imprinted in my heart ❤️ I’m so grateful you got to get to know Noah and Liam (or as Liam calls you, Cookie Grandma). I could go on and on, but there is not enough space. You are forever in my heart and soul. ❤️
