Dear Gram,

I have so many wonderful memories of you.

Here are some of the things I loved to do with you:

drop toys down the laundry chutes (especially darts),
eat pizza and Hough Bakery treats with the whole family,
drink out of your yellow & blue plastic cups with the animals on them (preferably milk or root beer),
hike through the woods behind your house,
play ping-pong in the basement,
play with the toys in the closet and all your stuff downstairs,
watch Peter Pan,
go to Whips Ledges and hike and have a picnic,
smell your house,
attend Ridgewood Methodist Church,
chase each other down the halls,
go to see fireworks,
take very funny pictures (you were always a good sport),
ride with you in the car,
and sit and talk,
and laugh... a whole lot.

Thanks for being a wonderful grandmother.
Thanks for always loving us.
And thanks for teaching me the difference between "b" and "d."
It's come in really handy.

Kelly & Bridgette

I'm sure Great Grandma and Grandma too for that matter are just as proud as they can be! The pictures are just great and I'm sure they're so happy to see you and Jon too!

Love to you all-

Those are such darling pictures!! The one of Bridgette in the tu-tu and the ones of her napping are my favorite. Such personality shining behind those eyes!
