My Grandma was an awesome lady…never mad or rude, and never mean to me…she loved her dog and would sing to her dog, it would make her dog happy…she loved birds especially canaries, she loved to read her Bible and also loved to go out to eat after her appointments with her Doctors…But most of all, my Grandma…she loved to watch and shop the Home Shopping Network only to turn around and give us what she had purchased… and then there was her jewelry… Oh man, did she LOVE her jewelry… I can honestly say that I have lost a piece of my heart that no one will ever replace…I loved my grandma so very much… Ruby
