Quite possibly the most selfless person I ever knew. I've always missed you, living far away, but I always have and always will love you, Grandma. God Bless all of our family and friends, especially those who have taken care of her in recent years. Though not often said, It is deeply appreciated. I wish love, peace and contentment to all who knew her.
