She is a beautiful young lady inside and out, she is sensitive to other peoples feelings and is most often smiling.  We don’t see her as often as we would like…she is busy.

We spent some time with her on her birthday.

Nineteen…seems so young…on the cusp of the rest of her life.

Dear Savannah, Grandpa and I have loved you since the first time we laid eyes on you.  We loved how you would race through the house hollering “Yums” as you headed for the office and Grandpa’s M & M machine.  We loved how gentle you were with the dogs….petting with just one finger…gently.  We loved how you colored and drew the most beautiful creations on paper and rocks.  We loved when you came to stay and didn’t want to go home.  We love your smiles and your laugh and those hugs you give so freely.  You will always be special and loved.  Grandma

  13. Sweet young lady indeed. And referring to the previous post, I'm wondering if they still have a sauna in Menhaga. I took my first and only one there many years ago on an opening weekend with the guys fishing 5th Crow Wing...:)
