The time we spent at the World Cup I will cherish. I know I should not write this, but she was my favorite grandmother. I deeply miss her. My condolences go out to the whole clan.

  11. My "Granny" once told me that if you see a little bit of blue in the sky on a rainy or snowy day that it would clear into a beautiful day. Well on the evening that she past away it was cloudy and rainy. I went outside and was thinking of Her and as I looked up there was a little bit blue in the sky. That "little bit of blue" turned into a magnificent rainbow. She always gave beauty and love. I love Granny So much, she will be missed. With all my Love and Sympathy, Tobey Jean Boswell
