    Such a beautiful lady! I have been so blessed that you have shared your wonderful son with me and we have shared these precious grandchildren. I can never replace your love for them but I promise never to take them for granted and I will love them twice as hard for both of us. Take your rest sweet Nan, you deserve it . You did good! Love you, Tammy

    I will cherish the memory having a day out at the cabin west of Omaha. The kids playing by the lake and everyone simply enjoying company one with another. I so enjoyed sitting on the covered porch talking with you. It was a good day. When you looked at the children, your eyes were glistening with love. You were a wonderful Nan and a very gentle soul. You will be missed.
