Granny also known as Becky, was most definitely one of a kind. Granny loved with her whole heart. She took everyone under her wing, even if you weren’t blood related, and made them feel like family. She was “Granny” to everyone who knew her. She was the best Granny we could have ever hoped for. Granny loved playing games of all kinds.
