Our Mom Mom was generous, passionate, fiesty and strong willed. She was the type of storyteller you could listen to all day. She showed us what it meant to be a mom and a grandmother. Even during her illness, you could catch her sticking her tongue out at her grandson, showing us that no matter what was going on we still had our fiesty Mom Mom. Her family meant the world to her and in a lot of ways she showed us what family truly means.
In the end, her wings were ready but our hearts were not. We know she's watching us from heaven with Pop and David by her side. This goodbye is not forever, its just until we meet again.
For those wishing the family has requested that donations be made to the American Cancer Society. Due to current restrictions, services and interment will be private.
