"My Grandmother was my sunshine. No matter how dark and gloomy my world became, she was always there to brighten my day. Although sometimes there would be hundreds of miles between us, she was always just a phone call away. I will desperately miss those phone calls and the way we began each one by singing together Stevie Wonder's "I just called to say I love You". I will miss her smell, her smile and mostly her laughter. She was the most beautiful person I have ever known. She was my Mother and my best friend and I am so very proud to be Edith's Granddaughter. MISS YOU GRAM!!! Thank you, Amy Lewis"
The Lord Is the Heart of the Home and
the Home Is the Heart of Christmas
Memories to treasure are made of Christmas Day, and birthdays
Made of family gatherings and children as they play...
And always it is Gram who plays the leading part
In bringing joy and happiness to each heart
of her love one's .... when they were sad or hurt.
These memories grow more meaningful with every passing year,
More precious and more beautiful, more treasured and more dear...
And that is why at Christmastime there comes the
happy thought that she gave us.
Out of all these treasured memories that Gram's love has brought us.
For no one gives us more happiness them Gram did.
The understanding, kind and wise and selfless, loving
I wouldn't trade her for the world.
And of all the loving Gram's, the dearest one is you.
For you live Christmas every day in every thing we do!
Giod Bless you Love and will miss you dearly.
