Today we will lay to rest my Grandmother. She was a wonderful, loving, present and attentive Grandma and I am blessed with many warm memories. My brother & I spent countless sleepovers at her house. We would play marathon games of Chinese checkers with her and my Grandpa, while Wheel of Fortune and Murder She Wrote was on the family room TV.
Grandma was nearly 93 years old and left behind 11 children, 35 grandchildren; 73 great-grandchildren; and 11 great-great grandchildren. Now it doesn't get much more Irish- Catholic than that! And I think it goes without saying that her family was her life.
May Her Memory Be Eternal. Love you G-ma!
