"When God created grandparents, the world was truly blessed with all the special joys that make a family happiest.  For grandparents know how to do the little things that warm our heart.  They touch our lives with love and care right from the start… They show that they believe in us and all we’re dreaming of… When God created grandparents, he blessed our lives with love"….  Love, your Grandchildren 

A memorial service will be held in the spring.
