Mom/Grandma Okey-Dokey, we will love and miss you always. God would only allow a soul as beautiful as yours to stay on earth for 101 years! You were truly our inspiration. You said you were ready to hear the angels sing, so now you are up in heaven harmonizing with them and probably accompanying them on the piano.
