When we were kids, she made it a point to make sure we had clothes on our backs. I am truly sorry for your loss…an angel went home.

Nicholas, your grandmother will be sadly missed. Cherish all the memories you have of her. God needed another angel to be with Stacey. Even though her passing hurts remember she is in a heavenly home.
Love you, MOM
