Meme was the paternal grandmother to my husband, Jared. From the very beginning of my relationship with Jared, Meme welcomed me into the family. The first time I met her, she gave me a big hug and said, "well hi, sweetheart!"
Meme believed so passionately in Jared's dream of becoming a doctor. She asked for a status report every time we saw her. She was his cheerleader, and I am so grateful to her for that support.
Jared and I had the honor of seeing Meme the Thursday before she passed away. I am so grateful I got to give her a hug goodbye. I love you Meme and I am thankful to you for the legacy you left behind. Rest in peace, beautiful lady.
