From the grand-babies we say thank you for always making us bacon and eggs for breakfast. For all the basketball shoes you bought us. For attending every sporting event that you could make. For showing us that hard work is not a chore, but a privilege to provide for your family and that generosity was worth more than money. Also for teaching us that you must always be the strong one even when you feel you cant be.
Thanks Grama for showing us unconditional love and support.
Love your Grandbabies, Sonny, Miss POOPS, Coyo, Miss Chels, and Baby Boy.
