In lieu of flowers please donate to a charity of your choice or St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital in Grams (Elizabeth McKeith’s) name.

Gram was not only my grandmother but my best friend, believer, supporter, encourager, wing-woman, hero, and most of all; wind beneath my wings. Not enough words or pictures can capture the amount of memories we shared. She had a heart like no other. She never left my side since the day I was born. Her hugs could fix anything, any problem, any worry in the world. She touched the lives of every single person that crossed her path. I will forever love and miss her with my entire heart.
