A beautiful lady full of Scotch-Irish strength and faith. She is my grandmother and the person I admire the most in my life. She had a very hard life, raising 7 children without her husband.
He was killed when the youngest was only 6 mos old. Grandma never asked for anything and always thanked her Lord for everything. She was surely an angel on earth. I loved her very much and she will always be in my memories and in my heart. God Bless you lovely lady.
