  3. Love you Grandma,
    I will always remember the fun times we had together as a family.
    All those family Christmas get-togethers and weekends when we would come out with Mom to swim and eat pizza at your house.
    We had a lot of good times over the years. You were always loved and always will be.
    Miss you Grandma.
