My sincerest condolences to your entire family.I worked with Granny @ Wendy's in Marysville for 3 1/2 years and got to know her and tamara well. Granny was there for me when I lost my brother Jason Mathewson in 2004. it is so tough to loose a family member, espically when they are a leader like Granny. Just remember that we will see her again in Heaven, sitting there with Tannya, waiting on us to take a seat with them.
               In God's eternal Love,
                   Krista Mitchell
