Thank you, Grandma, for always being a bright light for us all. One heck of a lady is right, Amy! It is truly a blessing that we all have someone with so much love to give in our lives. With a humble heart and pure intentions, I cannot think of a better role model than Grandma Dreffein. Peace be with you always
