Dear Grandma's Family,

My heartfelt wishes of great memories. She was so fun. I can remember her smiles and laughter, always up at a cottage. I'm so glad I always came with MaryKaye. Grandma and I used to sit on the porch and get away from some of the hustle and bustle. When she came for The Chardon Polka Band, I usually sat next to her. ❤ Her spirit will live long. She was very endearing. I am so sad with you all. Let's celebrate her life.

All my love,

Judy Mackulin
