It seems like just yesterday I visited her, though it was so far away. Most kids would be bored out of their minds in the situations I was in visiting her, but though tired at times I appreciated each visit. She always approved of my love in fauna and gave me a greater appreciation in flora, and her long flowing hair was one of the inspirations I had for growing mine out. I'll miss going out to her house, small as it was, to look at the wide variety of memories it preserved, but I'll cherish the memories I have of her forever. I love you, Grandma.

My dearest friend Teresea. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was always a 2nd mother to me and so many of my happy childhood memories revolve around your mother. She was always so kind to everyone. I also want you to know that although I didn't go to Gail's services, I went and put some flowers on the place that I thought she was laid to rest. I pray that God will be with you, Grant, and Leasa, and your families today and always. With Love, Becky
