Our precious memories of grandma include traveling, camping, fishing, many games, cookies in the freezer, lots of love and contagious laughter. We’ve been inspired and encouraged watching grandma conquer the fears of living alone. She taught us by example about joyful contentedness, patience, kindness, and caring for others.
