Family bids goodbye to beloved grandmother

My dear grandma, Betty Jane Taylor, passed away Sunday. I am honored and privileged to call you my grandma and I treasure all of the wonderful memories from my childhood through adulthood. You leave behind so many who are also grateful and deeply touched that you were such an important part of their lives. You will forever live in our hearts, Grandma. With much love and admiration, from your sons and daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We will miss you.
