Cheri, Tim, Brittany, Chris, Cass, Chas, Mark and Granny�s entire family,
My thoughts and prayer are with you all. Granny was an amazing lady. I had the honor of meeting her many years ago, and I was blessed by her as she took me right in as one of her own. I have many memories of all of the good times we shared. Granny will always have a special place in my heart, and will forever be missed.
I love each and everyone of you, and will always be there for you
