    I love you with all my heart. You are such a loving, caring and giving person. Family….Family has always been your main focus and you were a true Matriarch of our family. I will remember our Sunday dinners at the Sweden house, Friday nights at Burger Chef when you took Bart and I for mariners, going to visit Uncle Roy at the nursing home, the long trips to Niles, Mi., the laundry tips you taught me, your Spanish rice and no-bake cookies, our trip to Florida, and so much more. To this day, I still pick up lint off of the carpet. I thank you for all that you always did for all of us and the lessons that I learned from you. I am truly a better person for having you in my life and so proud to call you my Grandma. You will be missed so much by your family. It is now your time, time for you to rest in peace.
