You are loved and remembered.
Thank you for the goodness, sweetness, and love you provided this family.
You were a great cook.
Not once did we visit without you making a sandwich or sweet treat.
Even if it was a quick snack you would always have a dinner table place setting complete with place mat, fork, knife, napkin, and juice glass with crushed ice.
Holiday meals were something to behold, be smitten with and definitely be devoured.
You would always send us home with a double batch of pancake batter and wanted that Tupperware container returned.
Being with you was fun and a happy place.
The sodas were stashed under the stairs in the basement.
That trip to get a soda was always fun because the basement was full of cool and interesting old curiosities.
Old furniture, lamps, old toys, two big old wooden bird cages, grandfather’s framed collection of arrow heads, and presidential campaign buttons from years past come to mind.
I love the way you loved.
The way you loved your husband and family is a special kind of beautiful, something to strive for.
Growing up we had lots of laughs together be it sliding down the hallway stairs, climbing in the tree outside the garage and later playing rounds of golf.
You had your hair done often and you smelled good, Chanel #5, I think.
Regardless the holiday you sent a card.
Memories of Christmas times past and listening to the old record player will forever bring warm emotions into my heart.
Principles of getting more than you give or being loved more than you love is evidenced from the deep emotions and sweet memories your passing evokes in all of us.
Regardless of the occasion, being with you made me feel special and loved.
I’m very fortunate and proud to be a descendent of you.
You were a sweet and loving grandmother, thank you. I wish everyone in the world could have a grandmother like you.
You will live on in my memory.
It is not a loss but an amazing, beautiful win, thank you for being my Nana, Banana.
