    I'm speechless, I know that we were never extremely close due to where we resided and this still comes as a shock. Say hi to Granny and Aunt Day for me. Rest in peace.

      I won't be able to attend the funeral due to working out of state.

    So very sorry to hear about your sweet and hospitable grandmothers passing. I will always remember Christmas and Easter at her house and all of her beautiful decorations. Prayers to you all during this time. Love always and forever, Kami and family
