    For those of us that grew up with grandparents living out of state, Grandma Snell was our surrogate Grandma. She loved us, and we loved her. I am certain there is a special place in Heaven for her with a front row seat looking down on us to make sure we don’t step out of line. God Bless you Grandma Snell. You made the world a better place.
