Definition of Grandma:
She is the one with the biggest heart, the warmest hugs, the best advice, the yummy food. She is a safe place full of love, laughter, and treats. A best friend forever.
“A grandmother is a little bit parent, a little bit teacher and a little bit best friend.”
Thank you to all of you who have reached out during this difficult time. Dianne will be deeply missed!
