Im so glad to have such a Wonderful Women to call My Grammy. I’m going to miss are talks she was so straight forward I think that where I get my straight forward from and don’t care what people think about me. I also still laughing at the photo with the brief on her head when I first went to visit her at Regency when I found out she was in there. Thank you Regency on The Lake for taking great care of my Grammy.

I remember your Grandma when she drove bus. I was also a bus driver. She was a very gracious lady. Another connection with her was when she had my husband do work for her on her house on 24th Street. I was at Regency for a week in December after a hip replacement and I saw her there. She didn’t remember me though which I recognized but I stood and talked to her for a while. What a beautiful soul she was and I am sure she was welcomed into Heaven into Jesus loving arms. I’m so sorry for your loss.
