  1. I know everyone thinks that they have the best Grandma, but I can truly say that I had the BEST Grandma. My grandma helped raise me to be the person that i am today. She was such a wonderful, fun loving, and happy go lucky person. Her family was what made her the happiest. We are so lucky to have been blessed with her for 91 years. I will miss her more than I could ever explain. I love you so much Gram, I’ll see you later
