Memories Timeline


  1. In the short time I have gotten to know Grandma, I have learned, she is a very special woman to each and every one she touches. She will always be in our hearts and memories. The last time I saw her, as Shane and I were leaving, she took my face in her hands and said, "There are no tears in heaven." I will always remember her beautiful smile at that exact moment. We will miss you grandma. Love, Sherry, Shane, Brittany and Lynzie
