My Gram Sarah was a great person. She was very loving and fun to have around. She enjoyed joking with people she knew and new ones she meets! I enjoyed very many things with my gram as i was growing up. Our favorite thing to do was going to the junk stores, boy she would always fund me something good! This is only one of my great memories of my gram. She will be greatly missed! I love you gram and I'm thankful to of had you in my life. Rest in peace and watch over us!
