Guestbook

  1. My grandmother was the best. I spent a lot of time with my grandparents when I was young and cherish all of those memories. Some of my favorite memories growing up were spending time in the country, riding horses, working cattle, getting in some fishing or hunting, but the best thing was spending time with family during Granny’s Sunday dinners and holiday parties. I try to teach my kids some of the things she taught me, but I can’t do it the way she did. I will never forget the great memories she provided. I love you Granny. Rest in Peace…..

  2. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Rev 21:4
