Many of days and nights were spent at Grandma Shirley's house growing up. Crissy and I never missed an opportunity to stay with Grandma and Grandpa. I was blessed to have been a part of this amazing family. They took me in as one of their own and I never questioned the love shown to me from this family. Grandma was a strong woman, one who always put her family first. Anyone who messed with her kids or grandkids would hear it from her. I will miss her dearly, and she will always hold a special place in my heart. To Uncle Robert, Uncle David, Uncle Billy, and Mom, just know that she is in a better place watching over all of you. No more pain, or suffering, and she is holding onto Grandpa and Ethan's hands! Crissy, I love you sister and I'm always here for you. If you all need anything please just let me know. I love you all!
