In September of 2006 she became a Baba to her only grandson, Cayman. She was so proud. The love she had for her little grandson was just beyond words and she had said that he was the light of her life.

She was the most incredible Mom, Mon-in-law and Baba. Her love for us was unconditional and we will never forget her. She will very much be missed but we will continue to have her living in our hearts forever as her love will always surround us. The footprints she left in our lives are ones that can never be washed away.
