You were the best Wife, Mother and Grandmother we could ever ask for and so much more. You were the matriarch of our family. Always so full of life and full of sass which we all loved about you the most. We will cherish all of the memories we have with you  like the squeaky rocking chair that you rocked us all in when we were little, singing Patsy Cline together, our trips to the beach, your awesome dance moves to who let the dogs out, baking your famous Christmas cookies  and so many more. You will always be forever in our hearts, we will always love you!
