  1. kelli, you have been on my mind, and now I know why. I am sorry that a piece of your life has left you; but what memories!You and Debbie were without a doubt the most devoted, and loyal and loving granddaughters and Grandma could ever have hoped or prayed for. Please smile when you remember how wonderful you two girls were to her. And from my point of view she will be remembered for her wonderful cooking; thanks to Grandma I tasted some wonderful foods. Now she rests in the arms of Jesus. May she rest in peace.
