What a special lady "Granny" was. I know you and your family will really miss her. But I know you have sooo many wonderful memories of time with her. I have always enjoyed hearing you telling stories about her. AND she made the most wonderful chocolate cake!! I hope you will share more stories. Love and sincere sympathy to all of you.
