My thoughts are with everyone as you go through this difficult adjustment without Mom, Grammy, Great Grammy and friend. Sally was always so much fun and so lively. I'm sure all who cared for her will have the fondest memories of her and how they were able to be with her for so long.

My "Gram"


Thank you for the best memories I could ever have.  I loved when I'd walk through the front door and you would always say "hey kiddo" and I would ask you how you were and you always would say SOS. That always made me laugh.  Thanks for teaching me how to be the most awesome phase 10 player I could be, even though I think you cheated a few times, I could never beat you! I loved how every night we would get you your ice cream cone even if you were freezing! or when we would play crochet in the back yard and one of us was winning you would get so mad because you were so competitive ( I think I get that from you). I'll never forget that time when I tried to outdrink you on chocolate martinis and now thanks to that I can never have another chocolate martini again in my life! 

I hope you have lots of martinis and coronas, and I hope your sitting in a gazebo with Grampy enjoying an ice cream cone together.  I'll miss you terribly but will continue to make you proud, I promise. 



Your "Ali"
