Rita, Rachel, and Andrea,
I’m so sorry for this huge loss to your family. We’ve been through so much together the past 35-40 years. Grandmama was part of our family too. She was quite the character and I loved being around her. She will live on in all the wonderful memories you have. May our loving God wrap his arms around each of you and give you peace.

Love and prayers to you all.
