Dear loved ones, I have been attempting to track down Grandma for a long time. I saw her at the hospital when she was in rehab and then at the Black residence a few times but guessing after Roy passed then she went by you in Ohio. Grandma was very special to me and impacted my life in so many ways! I was shocked and stunned to read of dear Rusty's death in her obit. He was also so very dear to me. Linda, we have loss track of each other but would enjoy hearing from you. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. We were out of town and sorry that I could not attend the graveside service. I will go and look for her grave on a nice day. Love, Barb
