Message: I have no hesitation in saying that Granmaw was the kindest most loving person I have ever known. She set an example that few if any of us will ever achieve.This world would be a much better place if more people were like her. She lived her faith and never wavered in her beliefs. This world will never be the same for me because her goodness is missing from it. I miss her already. I would like to tell her how much I love her and how she will always inspire me to be a better person.
