2: when you and I would break out the crayons and coloring books. I'm serious, I really enjoyed that..You always made me feel like I did things so good and I LOVE making you happy-Still Today. After coloring, Grandpa would be snoring in his chair and we would quietly go into the kitchen for a snack.. there was nothing better than a cold glass of milk, a slice of white bread and real butter. I think we did the same routine every night for a week. It was a great time and a wonderful memory. Grandma, thank you for spending time with me. I have so many great memories of us doing things together, including when my Dad called the morning of October 3 to tell us the great news that Mommy delivered a healthy baby sister. You know when we were together too..That's right, we saw each other every day, before and after school, because you were the bus driver at our school. Grandma, I know why you were my bus driver, it was because you loved me so much you wanted to see me every day! At least that's how I'll remember that time in my life. Thank you, Grandma-I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! You are the BEST and I'm so thankful that GOD brought us together!!! Love, Gregory, Your First Grandchild | When I was 9 years old, my Mom and Dad went to Hawaii and me & Joey were sent to your house for a week. This was no big deal for me because I loved hanging out with you and my cool uncles. Every night, around 7 p.m. we would sit down and watch The Lawrence Welk Show. That was great but the highlight of the evening was

4: Me and My Dears with love from Michael | You made me breakfast every morning. You let me drive your car when I couldn't even see over the dash. You are always there for me and I love to come by you and just talk. You are wonderful and I love you so much. Love, Hoop
5: I remember when I was little the weekends I spent at your house. Back then is when the invention of your "Up & Down Sandwich" came about. Til this day that is still one of my favorites. Now, I appreciate all the encouragement that you give me and I love to hear that you're proud of me and my business. I LOVE YOU! Jimmy Jr. | I have so many wonderful memories. It was so nice growing up so close to you. Being able to go to your house for weekend breakfasts, Up & Down sandwiches for lunch,and 5:00 dinner (Roast pork, mashed potatoes and cream corn were my favorite!) You are a wonderful Grandma and we are all so blessed to have someone like you in our lives. Love, Rose
6: I LOVE TALKING POLITICS WITH YOU! Love, Timmy | I enjoy our time just sitting and talking and learning about your life and sharing mine with you. Grandma, you have been there for all the important moments of my life and your presence made those moments extra special to me. Love, Jenny
7: My parents, Grandma, Grandpa and I were vacationing at Long Lake. Grandma & Grandpa bought me one of my favorite childhood dolls. I called her "Pink Cloud". Thanks for the memories. Love ya, Grandma! Katie | You always speak your mind and altho it may not be what I want to hear, I know it's because you want what is best for me & because you love me. Thank you for all you do. I love you, Gram. Kathleen
8: Life goes so fast, thinking of the parties we had at the house on LaCrosse. All of us together, kids running around the basement. My favorite thing was climbing the pole in the basement. We used to fight over that pole. Then Grandpa would pay me a dollar to make sure that no one went upstairs, Which never worked, no one listened to me. Who the hell is gonna listen to a 6 year old? Gram, there is one thing I have to say to you. You are the best gram anyone can have and I got you. Love, NICHOLAS DAVID | When I was small, Grandma & Grandpa would come over and play cards and we had so much fun. I think that is why I like to play cards today. I love you, Grandma. Love, Tony
9: Grandpa taught me how to play poker and I beat him! He wanted to take back the money I had won. You stuck up for me and made him give me all the money! You have always been there for us, taking care and watching out for us. I love you, Grandma. Love, Joanna | When I think of you, Grandma, so many things come to mind. You have always been such a big part of my life. I love the time we spend together. I am so glad we were able to stay with you while we built our house. When I go past your house on LaCrosse, it makes me smile and I think to myself, "You're house is a MUSEUM!" I love you. Amy Martha
10: Grandma, my dad and I fishing at Paw Paw Lake. Good Times! I love you, Grandma Nicky III | Some of the best memories I have of you is Christmas at your house. Everyone was always smiling and happy and it was something we looked forward to!! You always know how to keep us all in line and are always there when we need you. You are the most forgiving and wonderful person we have in this family and I look up to you. I love you, Grandma. Nicole
11: You have always been such an important part of my life! I remember going to the Sycamore Pumpkin Fest when I was little; who would have thought I would end up spending 6 years out here. I really enjoyed the times you visited me at NIU & drove us around, telling me about the town where you grew up. I have so many great memories of you: the times you babysat for us, Grandparent Days at St.Paul, living with you, baking Christmas cookies, the list goes on & on. I am blessed and thankful to have you as my Grandma and my neighbor! I love you, Grandma! Love Gina | I am baiting Grandma's hook so we can fish together. Love ya, Grandma! T.J.
12: One of the first things that comes to mind is your yearly Birthday present of Cowboy boots for me. You were my inspiration to be a Cowboy! I am so glad you are my neighbor and I can help you out. I love spending time with you, chatting about our lives. You always show so much interest in everything I do and it means alot to me. I love you so much. Love always, Your Little Helper aka David Joseph, Jr. The Baby Grandchild
