No words. Grandma, you will be missed terribly. You were the Sunshine that kept all of us going and growing in faith, love and family. You taught us how to fight for what we believed in and treat others with love and respect. Your "feisty" personality came thru when you beat Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 1986 and you inspired all of us to live for happiness. You will be forever missed.
