Kim Niekamp, I know you are going to miss your grandma a lot. I enjoyed being around her the few times I was. She was one heck of a lady and she always made you feel welcomed. She lived a very long life, she enjoyed life. I enjoyed knowing her, she always made you feet like you were part of her family. God Bless you for watching over her, Thomas too. May you hearts heal soon and know she is in heaven in God's arms. God Bless you Kim& Thomas. Love and prayers Linda
