S: We miss you Grandma
BC: This book was designed to help you all remember the wonderful woman you were blessed to be able to call Grandma. Her children and grandchildren were the world to her, just as you are the world to me. She comforted us all when we were sick, down, or just needed a friend to listen. Although she is gone from our sight, her presence can live on in our memories. Never forget the love she had for us. Never forget the love you had for her. | I promise to always strive to be as good of a mother as she was a grandmother to all of you. Love to you all, my little angels, Mom
1: Beautiful wife wonderful mother
2: You guys didn't have the chance to get to know your Grandpa very well, but he loved you guys so much!
3: Growing up in a big family was amazing. So much love was showed to us by your Grandma and Grandpa.
4: From the time I can remember, your Grandma was surrounded by children. I was six years old when my sister Cathy had her first baby, Braden. Grandma was probably the most proud grandmother out there. She loved having the babies in her arms, sleeping on her chest, playing and oogle and googling with them! She loved her role as a mother, but she shined as a grandmother. I am so thankful that you had the chance to feel just how much she loved you all, I just wish it would have been able to last for so many more years to come. But she still lives within us, and we are able to keep her alive with our love and memories.

6: This was our first road trip as a family! Your dad was overseas in Iraq finishing up a long deployment. Grandma drove out to Colorado with us to Uncle Butch's (actually in Aztec, NM). Although it was a long trip, we had a blast. | Though we may have had a few issues with the very, very, very long ride....having Grandma's calm nature along for the ride made mommy so much more relaxed. It was a wonderful weekend with the Keller family.
