Everytime I play Chinese checkers from this day and on I'll always think of you gram, how you taught me to play and finally would play hours of games with me. Love and miss you grandma!

Sending my deepest sympathy to you all. Jo Ann and I have been friends since high school. I am going to dearly miss her and our silly letters we wrote back and forth every week to each other and our long phone calls. R.I.P my dear sweet long time friend until we meet again.
