Mrs. May will be missed . She was a wonderful person. Mrs May always had time for a chat and a smile, when ever I saw her. One time we both happened to be in a store and I stopped her to say Hi. She informed me I could call her Ida. I told her okay Mrs. May. She was proud of her children and grandchildren and loved them all very much. You could tell that by the way she talked about them. Sorry for your loss. You will always have your memories in your heart.

My grandma was an amazing woman. She was the focal point of our family. There was so many shared stories with her. She would share her tea with me. The best tea ever. No matter how old we were there was always time to sit under the shade tree with grandma. My trip in April to Michigan to see grandma it was such a special treat. I wish I was around more as I live in California but I know my grandma knew I always loved her. As a grandparent myself if I could be half as sweet, caring and supportive as she is I will be good. Grandma I love you and I always will. You are forever in my heart.

I was so lucky to have such a sweet and loving Grandma. She had many grandkids and she cared deeply for us all.
I think what I’ll remember most is the image of her at her home, sipping tea and sitting under the shade tree, catching up with everyone on what’s been going on in their lives. She loved to engage with people, listen to their stories and tell stories of her own. She will be missed tremendously.
