Mother, we know what you are doing in heaven. You are attending to all of God's beautiful gardens and walking all of your creature friends that you so loved down here on earth. When it got cold in Wisconsin you flew south with the geese and migrated to the warm sunny skies of Florida, Texas and Illinois. From there the circle continued so on and so forth; this is how you earned the name Grandma Migrate. We are comforted knowing that you migrated this last time to your final destination when Jesus called you home. We miss you Shorty!
