    Thoughts and prayers are with you Meta (“Girlie”) during another very difficult time just a few weeks apart. My heart goes out to you and your family.. Your mother was a sweet, loving, caring, kind person, and lucky, thankful to have you for the care you gave her these past few years. She is in a better place now with no more pain, suffering. Al and Gladys have each other, they are not alone….

    It’s tough to find the words to say. My grandmother was a wonderful person in every way and she was always there for our family. She was a joy to be around and I was extremely blessed to be her grandson. Love you gram.
