    I’m grateful that I was able to grow up with Grams in my life. She was full of personality and quick wit and a beautiful soul.

    I’ll love you forever, Grams; keep an eye on all of us.

  3. I met Donna Simomian in 2006 for the next 2 years, saw her every weekend with Steve, and & lots of family functions. I did get very close to her, she was sweet, funny & a very slow eater, so we had lots of time to talk, she told me great stories, sometime over & over, LOL. But, I loved every min of it. I would make her puzzles & she loved them, because they were the stories she told me & her family & every one she knew. I didn’t get to see much of her in the last couple of years, but I did make sure I ask about her, every couple of weeks. She was a great Lady, that I loved very much. She will be missed greatly by the family who loved her & by everyone who knew her. RIP Donna Simonian!!
