Strongest woman I knew, a phone call that always made me smile, one of my favorite names to see on a letter received in Basic Combat Training, and the best support and love a granddaughter could ever receive. A grandmother that taught me anything I needed. Spiritually, and in life. Taught me to always go the extra mile, and to stand my ground when things get tough. Daisy is under care of my husband, cristiano and I living in the land of Green and Gold, the kind of place she was raised to be. We love and miss you, Grandma June. Sending up endless prayers and hugs for you and Grandpa.
