Granny was the sweetest woman I’ve ever known, she was an angel from heaven gone too soon. I remember always greeting her and she did the same when we visited. Her sweet and soft voice, always so soothing and calming. Granny, I love you and I miss you so much, I’ll see you in heaven.... Love Maddox
