I’ll always remember my grandma Jill’s bright personality and smile! I loved every time I got to go visit her in New Hampshire making her coffee every morning and going out on the lake. I’m so glad I got to spend as much time as I could with her everytime I got to visit her with my dad or aunt Carolle. Sending all the love and prayers to my family.
