Granny is a big powerful word. They come in all different sizes ours was little, but oh so strong. She was strong in love for her family and most of all her faith in our Lord. She always had our back no matter what might be going on. There was no giving up on our part cause there was daily prayers being said by her sweet voice for all of us.
Granny our hearts will cry for you until we see you again we miss you.
You was a little granny and a mom to a lot of people you're amazing talent as a seamstress could patch a hole in someone's favorite pants and kept a lot of people warm from the long hours of love you put in every stitch making a quilt by hand. Your ability to read and write Cherokee the way you spoke the language was so beautiful. Oh granny we love you so much; we will hold on tight to each other's hands just the way we would do as we prayed together as a family.
