I'm so blessed to have had my gram for 44 years and 359 days.

She was never selfish and put everyone before herself. (Especially my grandpa)

When my grandpa turned 100 years old he was asked, "What's your secret" and he replied "A good wife".

My grandparents were married 77 1/2 years.
They ate every meal together at the same time every day. (Waffles on Sundays).
If grandpa didn't eat, grandma didn't eat. If grandpa slept in the recliner-so did grandma.

We've all experienced a loss, but my grandpa has lost his person. His everything.

We have heard my grandma's stories and silly phrases over 100 times. We would love to hear them just one more time.

God has a time for everyone. It was her time, who am I to argue with God?!
