My grandmother instilled in us values. She showed me support,love, and Biblical principles. She accepted me as I am. It is up to us, her grandchildren to carry on the torch and legacy. Personally, I always enjoyed going out with her for a hamburger and A&W root beer. She made something so simple fun and it gave us time for a good conversation. I will never forget the special visit last year, my sister and I had enjoying grandma and Aunt Judy's company. Scripture says as we honor our father and our mother, it will go well with us. I know that Jesus will bless my Aunt Judy because she took such good care of our grandma. "God bless the Blums"

Virginia was a dear mother-in-law. When our children were pre-school age, she would call me up and ask me if I needed a day out! Mom would come over to our home in Dryden from Imlay City and watch the kids so I could have a day to go shopping, or out to lunch with my friends. Mom would always ask me to leave out some mending. I deeply appreciated her thoughtfulness. She was an exceptional lady! I will miss her!

Aunt Virginia was a wonderful person. She always had a smile and was happy to see others. I remember times when the Blum family was together she loved talking and catching up with everyone.
