"Matthew, you are never too late sending Love to your Grandma. You may not know that she was born in a leap year. Had she arrived just a bit later her Birthday would have been Feb. 29. We used to kid her that if that had happened she would only be 1 quarter of her age. She would reply "but look at all the Birthday parties I would have missed.". Like you, we love her and miss her so much. Sending you {{{HUGS}}}

Well she had and old VW bug and she would always take me with her. Seat belt laws weren't in effect so I would always stand up in the back of the car lol.
