Great Grandma is truly a hero to our family. She is a great example of pushing on and living life to the fullest, even when life doesn't always hand you roses. Grandma has gone through some of the hardest trials I can imagine. She lost her only daughter when she was six years old from Leukemia. She lost her first husband, and father of her children at a young age from heart complications. In just the past few years she has survived breast cancer and lost her second husband of twenty something years after a long bout with illness. She is truly a survivor in every sense of the word and that is just a glimpse! She pushes forward and keeps going. She is still quick as a whip and does cross word puzzles to stay sharp! I hope I can be like her when I get her age!
Happy Birthday, Sticker Grandma!
Uncle Doug...don't bother your sweet mother! (Just teasing her while she is sleeping!) Ha ha.
Here she is with Grandpa Bill. Sweet couple.
Lookin' sexy while doing a crossword puzzle! (Looks like it was a boring cross word puzzle!) I hope she doesn't kill me for posting this picture!
Oh, my. Ryan looks so young in this picture! Ryan was the first grandchild in the family and the only one to meet his Grandpa in the hospital before he passed away.
