She lived a very long life full of love and respect. She was an amazing woman who I truly loved. Funny story - she was at Good Sam as a patirent and I had to call Ellen (my best friend) to ask her first name. I had always called her Gramma so had no clue. Loved her and Art as my own parents. May she rest in peace now that she and Grampa are reunited.

So sorry to hear this, she was my other mom. She will be missed by all. A shame she was called home the same year as Dan. So hard for all of you.
