Dear Lori and Trey: I am so sorry about your grandma. I was thinking how God gave your grandmothers long lives – Gramma Ivy was 95 and your dear Anna was 93…both were amazing, caring women who are probably smiling and talking about the two of you right now. Miss and love you both, Cuz’n Tammy
Aunt Vera: it is so sad to lose a mom at any age, at any time of our life. Please know I am thinking of you and sending you a huge hug, love Tammy and family.
