My grandma was the best. She always made sure everyone around her was happy and taken care of. She was a kind and wonderful woman. She would do anything and help you as much as she could. I would hunt at my grandparents property and she would buy enough food for us for the whole week to feed us lunch or dinner.Like she was feeding an Army...lol. She will be deeply missed by everyone. She was our Mama, and the best grandparent anyone would be lucky to have. I LOVE YOU MAMA AND WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!
