Remember when we opened Westminster-Canterbury. It was December 1986 and we couldn't allow the residents to move in, the Certificate of Occupancy. So we let Mrs Jensen's cat into her apartment and we spent the New Year's holiday cat sitting. We have many stories to tell. God Bless I will see you one day, I'm returning to Mt. Hebron Cemetery when the Lord calls me.

When I was a little girl you took me everywhere with you from shopping to Michigan to see my uncle Steve. As I grew up I knew I could talk to you about anything that happened from my parents making me mad as a teenager to boyfriends breaking my heart. As an adult you rejoiced me loving my husband and cried with me to the loss of our child, telling me that it would be okay and that you had felt the same heart break. You gave me a book that had all your memories of when you were younger and it told the story of you. I came into your home as you started to forget things and read to you about you. I love you more than you ever know.. and I know when my time comes you will tell me it is okay and take my hand as you did when I was a child. Love you forever Minnie

Some of my fondest memories with my grandma were at her house on Ridge road. We used to trick or treat in her neighborhood. We played outside near the big willow tree. She is the reason I use so much scotch tape on Christmas presents every year. When we went to the mall together I was told to keep my hands in my pockets, but she always bought me something if I asked for it. And she never let us have a meal with out ice cream. There was always vanilla ice cream at her house. She was the best grandma a kid could ask for. I miss her so much right now and wish we could go back in time to those awesome days. But since we can’t she will watch over us and keep us safe. Until the day comes where we can all meet again, I will always think of her fondly and try to remember all the memories we shared. I love and miss you Minnie-me!
