3 years have passed and it still hasnt got any easier. I wish you could see how amazing your little Ana is growing to be. You are always on my mind and in my heart. I love you with all of me. Until the day we meet again.. I love you Grandma.
I have many happy memories of Aunt Cass. She will be greatly missed. I am sure that my Daddy was at the pearly gates waiting for her, excited to have one of their long, treasured conversations. <3
May God bring peace and comfort to the Walton and Lehman family.
We love you all!
Chrissy Brown and family
