    I loved every moment I spent with my Gram. To listen to her stories and her accent captivated me. I loved to hear all about my British heritage over a cup of tea. Anna, Elizabeth and Kate love their Great-Grammie very much. You were the best Grandma. The squirrels and birds sure are going to miss looking at you through your front door.
