I love you so much Grandma, the world doesn’t shine quite as bright since you’ve been gone.

My deepest sympathy to all of you as you grief the loss of such a wonderful, loving mother and grandmother. She was a lady ahead of her time. Classy and sassy with a smile and laughter that will be missed by the many that loved her so very much. I used to love stopping by her house on Browning whenever I had the chance for some of her warm hospitality and conversation. One of my favorite things about Christmas Eve was to have her and Uncle Ed stop by Grandma’s. I can only imagine the sisters are already warming up the Skip-Bo cards, the contagious sound of laughter must surely be ringing in heaven.

Aunt Iola lived her life with dignity and respect, but will best be remembered for her quick wit and sense of humor. She will be missed.
