I will always remember Ms. Ann A as I called her. She would called me Joy because she said I brought her joy whenever I came around. I didn't have the chance of knowing my biological grandmothers but when I met Ms. Ann A I did. Boy did we have some fun. We made great memories together even with my children and grandchildren. She will definitely be miss by all that came into her presence. I will miss you Ms. Ann A but I know you are in a far better place. I love you always...
