"Grandma, I remember walking down to your house everyday and eatting with you and grandpa. I recall one occasion I was 5 or 6 and I wasn't eatting so you mixed all my food together and you tried getting me to eat and I said no and picked all the food apart so it wasn't mixed together. I love you and hope you rest in peace. Say hi to grandma Tacke and Grandpa for me."
