  3. Great Grandma…You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember the times I spent at your house for holidays and the last time for your 100th birthday. I am so glad that I have the photos of you and Griffin together and you were able to meet him. I will make sure that he knows about the toughest little grandma there ever was! You truly were an inspiration to all of your family and will be missed.
