    Love you, Grams. A true source of matriarchal love, laughter, and wisdom throughout my life. In your honor, I’ll be eating meatballs and peanut butter cookies, drinking fuzzy navals…and (begrudgingly, as a Badger) rooting for Marquette on Saturday. Say hello to Grandpa and the rest of our angels. You live on in my heart and mind. Xo
