"I remember when I used to sit right next to grandma Eleanor watching cartoons; like Dora and Clifford in the morning and Soap Operas in the evening. We always ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches together for lunch. I love and miss her."

"As sweet as the jelly that used to fill up my belly everytime i'd visit you.
We'd laugh and we'd talk or we'd go for a walk.
But now it seems as if you've gone too soon.
We will see you again, we will miss you my friend, you were there from the start to the end.
We love you dearly, you are remembered forever.
YOU ARE THE BEST GRANDMA EVER!!!!!!"

""Amazing Grace"

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I'm found.
'Twas blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then when we first begun.
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I'm found.
Was blind, but now I see."

"     As we say see you later because we all know that it was NEVER goodbye. I made that mistake a few times going to leave and quickly said "bye gramma" and got that what did you just say look and quickly corrected myself "see you later gramma"
     All we may have is the love and memories she's left us with but that's what we need to hold onto. A love like that cannot be replaced.
     We are going to miss her and most of all I think we will all miss her smile. I remember walking into the house or her hospital room and she had a big smile on her face or she would chuckle at the silly things I would say.
     I know it's been said already her passion was her grandchildren and most of all her great-grandchildren. She babysat most of the great grandchildren and spoiled them. They could do no wrong and they got whatever they wanted. Us grandchildren the parents of the great grandchildren were the lucky ones who got to take the spoiled children home.
     I can't forget her animals...Barbie, Mitzy, and Tinker. She spoiled them too. She had a kind of communication with them. She knew exactly what they wanted and when they wanted it.
     A story my mother and father told me sticks out probably because I had done the same thing this past summer. My mom said they were driving down a back road and gramma said "look at all those dogs in that field". My mom said "mom if those dogs start running toward the road you better slow down because they aren't dogs they are deer". The reason this story sticks out is this past summer as I'm driving down a back road off in the distance I see horses coming down the side of the road. Well...as I approach these horses I realize they are actually people walking down the side of the road. So I guess gramma was not the only one with that really bad far away vision.
     She was the master at crochet. She's the one that taught me. The thing she crocheted the most was baby blankets for her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
     She was not alone in her passing. We all surrounded her bedside. Sent to heaven with love. Love you always Gramma."

"I remember every time mom and dad would bring us kids over, whether it was thanksgiving, Christmas, or any other day, grandma's face would light up with the biggest smile because she was glad to see us."
