    I am very saddened to hear of your mom, grandma’s, sister, life. I first met her a few years ago when my mom and I ran the Safeway Lottery booth. I had seen her a few times and always spoke so highly of her trips to Alberta and how she loved looking after the Salvation Army Kettle Drive. I came to think of her as a grandma to me as well since I lost both my grandparents at a young age. She lived a very long, happy life and feel blessed to have known her the little while I did. If I seen her at the bus stop I would offer to take her where she needed to go but she rather had walked. RIP Reta, I will really miss you. Nobody played Keno the way you did. I love you and sorry for your families loss.
