Keith, your grandmother was a special lady that loved her flowers. I enjoyed the little talks we had concerning her yard and the knowledge she brought to the conversations.

Ms. Dorothy was such a special lady. She cherished her family dearly. I feel I am a better person for having her touch my life.
