    Dear Grandma, Having grown up living across the street from you, I saw you almost every day the first 18 years of my life. I'll never forget your kind, compassionate, and loving attitude and the many things you taught me - especially how to make your chicken & dumplings (even though I rarely make them now). I always looked forward to "helping you" by dropping the dumplings in the pot when you were making Christmas dinner. I've missed your dumplings and German Chocolate Cake for several years now, but I'll bet you're making them now in heaven for Papaw, Donald, Tony and Marty......lucky dogs! ;-) I miss your sweet smile--the one I saw as soon as I walked through your door and your soft spoken "Hey Honey." I appreciate and will always remember your acceptance of me and all us grandchildren and great-grandchildren---no matter what we had done wrong. You loved us--no matter what!! Thank you for being the sweet, loving, soft-spoken, non-judgmental Grandma that you were and will continue to be in my heart. I love you so much and am very lucky to have had you for so many years as a role model. With a heart full of love, Your Granddaughter, Karen
