Allen & Carol and family.
I miss baba everyday, she was a strong, loving amazing person who gave so much of herself to her family. My memories of Baba include the time she spent with my little girls, talking about the animals and people in her life, helping with my garden and flowerbeds, and of course – taking care of little Greg. She has improved the lives of many of the people around her, just by being Baba. Love Gwen
