To all the family.....our prayers are with every one of you. This Lady was one in a million. There arent enough words to describe her. My son, Scott married Becky and I have always called her granny too. In the dictionary beside Granny.....they should have her picture. She was everything a granny should be. She will be missed by many and forever loved by all.
