Heaven has gained another beautiful angel. We will miss Minnie but are
happy for her that she has reached her eternal reward. We had a wonderful
time visiting with her when we were up in August. Such precious memories
we’ll forever hold in our hearts, of “popsicle grandma” !! Our thoughts and
prayers are with you.
