My sincere condolences to the Riley Family. I met Gram after the passing of her daughter, Sandy (my best friend) and instant friends we became. Over the years Grams shared her wisdom with me and her laughter. Even in the darkest of times, Gram could make you laugh. I will miss her terribly but I know that she is home with her family. Thank you Gram for everything you gave me. Love Always, Alison.
