Celebrating a Wonderful Grandmother!

On December 28th, 2017 our family got together to celebrate Meme’s 95th Birthday in Roanoke, Virginia. We are all so blessed to have her still in our lives. Meme is my mom’s mother and has been a part of my life since day one when I was born in Roanoke. I have been very fortunate to have her in my life and in Sam and Amanda’s life as they have grown up. We spent a wonderful evening at one of her favorite restaurants in Roanoke, Coach, and Four. Her three children, Becky, Buddy and Billy along with their families were there to celebrate, everyone made it into town and we all loved being together for the evening. Here’s to our next celebration, 96!!
