"Amee, the lord has someone picked out for you." My love was sent, grandma. You were right! I very much love you, and am so blessed that I had so many years with you. You were so involved in my life, for so many years! When you and grandpa would drive up to St. Cloud for the sole purpose of be being your waitress at the Park Diner!? You made me feel so seen, and loved, and special, and important. xoxoxox
