    Although I did not see grandma much over the last 20 years, I always looked as I drove by the house; the one I remember so well from my childhood. Every time I looked, I would see grandma’s little, gray-haired head in the big window. It always made me smile. I drove by today, and I looked as I always do, and felt the pang of loss. Rest In Love great-grandma. My condolences to those closest to her. I will always hold her memory fondly in my heart.

  8. Vicki (Youtzy) Cassidy says:

    Grandma was an amazing woman. Her door was always open to anyone in need. I’ll never forget the family holidays at at her home where we packed everyone into that little dining room and kitchen, helping to make the real whipped topping with the hand beater to snowmobiling all over the yard to that mince meat pie I could not eat. And of course Grandpa and the boys playing penny poker on the card table in the living room. Forgotten in the obituary, preceding her death, was my brother, Alfred (Alfie) George ll, who died two months before my Dad Bill. She also had 3 great-great grandchildren on my side. Rest in Peace Grandma. I bet you and Grandpa are having the time of your life square dancing and catching up….
