Here's to the memories that transcend the written record. Peace to us all.
I only knew one grandparent, but I'll take my one over any other four any day. Grandmama was everything I could have ever wanted in a grandmother: unflinchingly kind, honest and genuine, while also being the funniest person I've ever known. She was the focal point of a rich and diverse family, and there will never be a day where I don't remember where I come from or what I have to offer, because of her influence which I will cherish for the rest of my life. I love you always Grandmama.
I remember your mom as such a sweet person when she would come to visit my Granny (Annie Coyle) when we were there. What fun she was! Wish I could have known her better. Praying for you all as you adjust - I know you will miss her.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Lou. I remember her as such a gentle lady who was always supportive of her children. And being a "railroad brat" who lived in the same neighborhood, I had many occasions to be around your mom through Susie who was also a dear friend. Lou told Susie and me once that we were "double trouble" because what one of us couldn't think to do the other one could! My heart goes out to all of you at this time. Let your memories comfort you.
