    I first want to say I am so sorry for your loss. Gram, you will be missed by many. I’m so glad I was given an opportunity to have you in my life. Your soft smile was so comforting and you always had a way to cheer us girls up.

    Teresa, Nicole, and Kaylee, you girls have shown me something in life that is so precious that’s a true bond between mothers and daughters. Gram was the start of that bond and even though she isn’t here with us in body, she will always be here in mind. The Gram I know will never leave your side. I love you all very much, and smile Gram is watching.

    The Perry family
