Susan, my sympathies to you and all your family. The memories of your sweet grandmother and our visits to C-burg will be dear in my heart. I love the picture that was put with her obituary, she's looks exactly like the memories I have of her!! I'm sure you feel very blessed to have such a wonderful grandmother, and you have made her proud, know that!!
