Since childhood, you have given me, so much strength within and this has been a precious gift that has seen me through thick and thin. It truly may be said that you bring happiness with all you do. There is no Grandma on this earth who could ever compare to you.
With Love,
Your Grandchildren & Great Grandchildren!
