Grandma O, was a dear, sweet, lady that let me call her grandma even though we weren't related. I always loved getting her Christmas card in the mail. She will be greatly missed and your family has our deepest sympathy.

Donna & family,
I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I have fond memories of those days so long ago when we hung out at your house and how your mother tolerated us! I know she has been a great mom to you, but to all us girls who hung out together, she was one of those special moms who looked out for us and really cared. Please accept my condolences.
