My most sincere and heartfelt condolences to you all. I will continue to hold you all in my prayers. Granny was such an amazing woman and I enjoyed every moment I was lucky to spend with her. She truly was one of the sweetest people I have ever met and part of an even more amazing family. Love being sent from Benson, NC. I wish Covid-19 wasn't around because I would be up there in a heartbeat to pay my respects.
