Past Comments


I have so many wonderful memories of time spent with you. You took the time to spend with us and teach us so many things.

Summers were spent going on long walks looking for wildflowers to press between books, special trips to the Milwaukee zoo, swimming in the pool, feeding the horses apples or carrots at the condominium, hunting for those “greenies” with you to play the game we made up at the nearby school.

Winter breaks and spring breaks were visits learning how to knit or sew. I remember the hours and hours you spent letting me practice my sewing on your machine. You had so much patience and were a good teacher. I will never forget all the dresses and outfits you made for me when I was a little girl, and now all the dresses and outfits you helped me to make for special events. I now have these wonderful skills that I can share with my own family thanks to you.

Thank you for always taking the time to come to so many concerts and activities. We had so much support from you.

You are wonderful grandma that will always have a special place in my heart. I love you!
