She loved family BBQs and playing any and all kinds of games. She usually won too. Even as recently as 3 days before her passing, she won a game of UNO. She loved watching her grandsons play basketball,football and wrestling, and watching her granddaughters dance and do other activities. She was so proud of all of them. We have a lot of special memories and will hold them close to our hearts.  She will truly be missed by so many, and we are all grateful to have had her in our lives.
