There is so many memories I have of Grandma way to many to list here, she was my best friend as a child I went everywhere with her, we would laugh so hard sometimes and people would look at us like we were crazy and the more we would try to stop laughing the harder we would laugh I am going to miss her but she is in Heaven now with my grandpa Drum, Uncle Duane, my grandma Weaver my grandbabies and all other family members that has made it to Heaven and someday I will be meeting them up there as well,... I love you Grandma!
