The world is a sadder place for the loss of that megawatt smile of hers. Doug and I want to share our sympathy in the loss of my beloved Great Aunt Lydia.

My grandmother was one of a kind... always ready to greet you with a smile, to send you off with a hug and plenty of love. Her matter-of-fact wisdom always seemed to cut to the heart of any issue. There was something so simple, yet so profound about everything that she said. While it is true that the world will never be the same without her, it is also true that it will forever be a better place because of her. I miss you Gramma. And I am eternally grateful for the example that you provided for the rest of us. I will try ever day to live up to that. Travel safe... and find us a good spot on the other side. Love you.
