In Loving Memory...Barbara M. Kemp

From The M&M Kemp Family
I feel very humbled tonight...I cannot put to words the feelings in our hearts. What an incredible legacy left behind. A woman of pure selflessness...never complaining...lifting everyone around her...loving whole heartily...a wife who sang and danced with smiles and laughter...a mother cheering and supporting all the days of her life...a grandmother full of empathy and understanding...and never afraid to get a little dirt under her fingernails...a great grandmother...tenderly coddling sweet newborns...yet spunky enough to chase 10 giggling toddlers at a time...a rock...a spiritual giant! And while she is greatly missed here on earth...what a celebration there must be in Heaven! You are loved and missed, Grandma...I only hope...we can continue the legacy you began.

Michelle, you put the heart into this description of our lovely grandma great. She was more than a mother in law to me....she really is my "other mother" and all her days, she built me up and cheered me on. I'm counting on her to continue to do that. E.
