Grandma was such a sweet soul. With every visit, I'd always start with "Hey Good Looking"...
Yesterday was tough. My statement yesterday at the funeral was "Goodbye Good Looking".
Prayers for My mother-in-law, her sister and my wife in this trying time. And prayers for all the lives she impacted. She left quite a legacy in life and I see it in her great granddaughter's eyes every day. I'll see you one day. Tell Aunt Becky that we all said hello.

Sorry for your loss but you were blessed to have her this many years. My childhood memories always include the Suess family. I loved all of you and I especially remember your mom loved to laugh. She was a sweet person. Love to your family.
