    Pinki, I’m so very sorry for the loss of you precious Mom. I pray that your memories can help to carry you through this very difficult time.

  • Grams lived up to her name! Her soul was beautiful and was visible to all who knew her. Love you guys!💖

  • This is for Grams….. {{{{{{{{{{{ ~BABS~The raw wool you passed down to me made many scarves. You will forever continue to warm others. I am entirely grateful for the time we spent watching birds on the electric wires.. We knew you were leaving us. We all knew it was going to be a blessing in the end, but the absence of your physical being is pretty difficult to shake. Selfish right.. Pinki is who she is because of you. You are finally free…. I love you}}}}}}}}}}}

  • Sending my love and deepest sympathies to Pinki and Brent and ALL THOSE that loved BABs. What a beautiful soul, a GREAT LADY, and a loving friend, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a special woman that I was so lucky to know. Rest in Peace Grams!! You will be missed.

  • I am sorry for your loss. God promises at Revelations 21:4 that one day death will be no more. I hope this brings you and your family comfort at this difficult time.
