Granny, We will miss you. You have been a part of our lives since our son (Landon) was 7 weeks old. We could not have chosen a better person to take care of our son from an infant to growing up. Even when he was old enough to stay home he still chose to visit you. You made a huge impact on his life. Up until the day before you got sick he visited you. I enjoyed our weekly or bi-weekly 6:30am visits. I find peace and strength knowing that you are in a better place. We will always love you and never forget you. We are eternally grateful for you. All our love, Donna, Robert and Landon (Richards) and Marie Dotson
