I have so many fond memories of my Grandma. She knew how to reach children at their level. She was a 3rd Grade teacher for many years, and I remember how much fun she was to "play with" when I was a kid. She would take us to the park or the school playground, and would read us great books like the Laura Ingalls Wilder series.

Grandma's secret to living a long life was to "move a little bit every day" - which she did right up until the last week of her life. She would almost beat me down the hall when she would walk me to the door!

Grandma left me with many happy memories which I will treasure dearly the rest of my life, until we are reunited.

First want to thank you for allowing us to be part of Alberta's life the past few years. She was a joy. ALways had that beautiful smile for everyone. Her eyes would sparkle when she talk about "My son Jim". She will be missed.
