Grandma I’m going to miss you so much. My favorite memories are when we all got together on the farm. Your homemade noodles & ice cream were the best.

So sorry to hear about Aunt Marrianna’s passing. I sure enjoyed my time with her when I was young. Wish we lived closer and could have visited more.
