I have such great memories of Grandma Withers. She barely sat down, she always had to be doing something, but when her family came thru the door she would stop and smile the biggest smile and hug you so tight! Her hard work, selfless volunteering, and zest for life made her even more special to those around her. I love you Grandma, and you will be missed.
