Hi Christina & Jesse,
We were so sorry to hear about your grandma. I’m sure you both have a lot of wonderful memories of her. Our sympathies to the rest of the family also. Love, Darleen & Flash/Grandma & Grandpa.

From: Darwin
Relation: mother

Parts of my mother lives on in me and I learned others such as: Her ability to let the child, inside all of us, to express itself, it kept her young at heart. Her hopefulness, passion, and spiritualism. I learned to know what it is to love unconditionally.

She was a mother to all her grand-children as well as her “kids”

Serenity at last, eh Ma.
