Gram - You just are part of me. So many memories I hold dear. The blue Ford car with the shift on the steering wheel, Max - that dog you really didn't like, the red rose bush in the front yard at Warsaw, the puppet shows on the stairs with Michelle and Robin, that heater by the bathroom, the year we lived with you and your house became ours, my favorite green glider on the porch, the berry bushes by the house, watching the squirrels in those huge trees by the house, but most of all you - your smile and soft face, your kindness and integrity, how you never missed a birthday or holiday and sent cards, your love for church and your favorite song - How Great Thou Art. Your voice and caring thoughts and ways, I love you much. Julie
