You were always there with a listening ear or ready to give great advice. I will miss our long talks on the phone and sending crossword puzzles to each other in the mail. You were very special to me and I will miss you so much. Just remember what I always told you...Behave and Don't cause trouble!
I love you Gram,
Your Ugly Duckling.🥰
