RIP Mamma G. You were loved by many because of your beautiful heart...you always made room at your table for one more and I had the pleasure of sitting at that table many times. I will miss you and loved you like my "Other Mother" because you always treated me like a daughter. God bless you and I pray he wraps your family in his arms and comforts them through their grief. You will be remembered fondly for the rest of my life and I will miss you.
