Love you Grandma! I hold in my heartbox memories of staying overnight with you, digging into the treasure box of a closet, playing dress up with your fancy shirts, heels, and jewelry. I can still smell your perfume. ❤️
My boys will remember putting puzzle pieces together with you.
You'll be missed 😘
