Grammy, Im so happy you made 90, you never thought youd make 82 or 85. I will always remember the times at the house in the yard. Worlds strongest coffee, chicken soup, apple cake, fresh fries, always had Iced Tea, splitting Beers with Rhutts Hutt Dogs, talks, calls on the phone and to me the funniest picture we ever took with the iPad that you made me promise I would not post. I did not till now because it makes me laugh. And yes I feel you kicking me in the pants all the way from heaven. You made a good run and stayed strong and healthy. Lord knew he needed you now and you can see all those who you missed. I will never forget a day or moment that we spent.
