    Amanda, Grant, Carter, Cole & Family, I’m so sad to hear of your grandmas passing. We have had some amazing conversations around her and the beautiful life she led. This will be a missing link for your family but also a connection as you will be able to tell stories together of her for years to come and celebrate her in this way. I am glad your boys were able to meet their great grandma and build memories. It will be such a great blessing for them and you! Many Blessings during this time. Beth~ Friend & Co-worker
