We were very lucky. Grandmother was able to travel from her house to my cousin's Pam house for the celebration. She was surrounded by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and dear friends. We all gathered for Susie. And it was beautiful.
Did I mention that my family loves Alabama?
