I've known her granddaughter, Jeri, since we were 8 and have been friends ever since. I remember hearing all about "Granny" since we met. Granny was always at birthday parties for her great grandchildren, and I know she was a very special part of Jeri's life. Mrs. Betty, and other family, I am so sorry for your loss of a beautiful person!! I know she will be greatly missed. We love y'all! The Davis Family
