So saddened by this news. Her Grandson Philip, his wife Blaine and three girls Baylee, Trinity and Elliott send love and prayers to her family at this time. She was a great story teller. Encourage all around her to attend church and Sunday dinner. She made the best cucumbers. Love always Phil and family
