    My grandma had the biggest heart and she would light up any room when she’d walk in. I always loved being around her listening to her stories or even just cuddling on the couch watching soaps or cops . I will forever miss her. I love you Grandma Rest In Heaven

  7. Barb McGeehan says:

    Although I never met your mom, I heard so many stories from both Connie and Lisa. I’m so very sorry you lost her, and I hope you can find peace and comfort from the people around you, and know I’m thinking of all your family. It’s so much harder to get through these days ahead of you. It’s a right of passage most of us go through, but I know you’ll survive. Take care.
