I knew from the first time I got to meet you that you were one special lady! I heard lots of great things about you from Brett and was excited to see the grandma that taught him so many things! You were so kind, loving, funny and I knew you were truly special. It breaks my heart that I couldn't have known you sooner but I will cherish the memories I have of the time I got to know you. I will also ensure that Brett "slows down!" and I will love him more than the way you ever expected him to be loved! Thank you for making him the man he is today and for that you will always hold a special place in my heart! May you rest in peace.
