A week ago my family lost a very special lady. My 82 year old grandmother went to be with the Lord after a 3 year battle with lung cancer. She fought a good fight and finally her body just wore out. Over the last few years, we have watched on as her health declined, but her fiery spirit never did. She was joking with her nurses and family just hours before passing away. My grandmother was a firecracker and you never had to wonder what was on her mind because she was sure to let you know. She was also a great cook, and I am thankful that I spent an evening with her learning all of her cooking secrets. I will treasure the memories I have of her forever and will one day share my memories of her with my children. Thanks to everyone that showed my family support over the last week. Love you MawMaw!
