Dear Gran,
It was so nice meeting you while you lived in Maryland, and spending time together at Sama and Julie's house. Will always remember the cigarettes, and laughing about your trips to the casino!! God Bless you wth peace and a special family reunion with those you love and who love you,too.

Granny used to work at Birge Wallpaper company, and wrapped any gift she bought in wallpaper. Thrifty-nifty!
