    Looking back at all the great times I got to spend with you. From getting to spend the night at the house and watch all the movies and playing games. Also watching cops with you while you threw back a few Milwaukee’s best light.

    To snooping thru Annie’s room while she wasn’t there. Also the time when Annie made me hide in the closet and not say a word until you and Pam called the police thinking I was kidnapped.

    We are going to miss your joyful presence when we are with you but we know that you will send joy to us from heaven. We love you so much and even know we can’t see you, we know that you are still with us still!

    Love you grandma!!

    Rest in peace Grandma, we miss you already! The girls and I planted some sunflowers for you the other day. Your love for all of us has touched our hearts in so many ways. We will never forget your generosity and all of the little treats for the kids. We love you forever and always.

    Mema was the most loving and kind person we have ever met. She touched so many people’s lives in such a loving way. She was very generous to my niece and nephews always buying them little gifts. She always said to us every Sunday, when she was at church, (Sacred Heart, Troy) how much she just loved our family! She will be greatly missed. She was definitely a gift from God. She will always be in our prayers. We love you and will miss you so much Mema!!!! Alice and Tim Vahey, Corena Gardner, Calvin, Cayden and Teddy Vahey.

    What a beautiful person. We were so blessed to know her. Mema was another grandma to my son. She stopped and talked to him every Sunday after Mass, always with a little gift in hand. She was always asking about our older son in the Marines. And also kept up with our daughter through her high school years. This morning her loss hit me when missing her presence in Mass. She will be missed by many.
