GRANNY D Granny D was a walking force of nature. She didn't really care if you loved her or hated her. She was always so welcoming And had a lot of love to give. But one of her favorite things... Was spoiling allllll these grand kids. She was a perfect mix of fire and ice. Always spoke what was on her mind. She could make anyone laugh. Granny was truly... one of a kind. You come to her home and you're welcomed with a million snacks... But you better not cross her line, 'Cause if you do, you gon' get smacked. She loved her family fiercely And was always... always there. You try to tell her what to do? Well... you probably heard "Well I don't care." She was funny. She was kind. She was stubborn. And she was bright. If you're right or wrong... it didn't matter, Granny D was ALWAYS right. We love you Granny, and we will miss you SO. Give Grandpa a big hug for us. Love, Cody, Leah & your Little Joe

Faye will be missed by everyone who knew her. She was always so kind and loving. No one could give hugs like Faye. I'll always remember being in her kitchen and no matter what time of day, she always had the coffee on and offering something to eat. I loved her as a friend and a really special sister-in-law. Prayers to the family.

They married into our family but as far as we were concerned she was blood we spent a lot of time together, night clubbing, Halloween dances, New Years Eve balls, fishing, boating, canoeing, camping and the Fourth of July was always spent at Joe and Fayes so many memories that I hold dear to my heart and will take with me when it is time for me to go. I loved you Faysie and cherish The millions of memories we shared
