Our sweet baby Zay kept us in Dallas at the hospital this past weekend but my heart was in Buffalo with all my family celebrating my Grandma Gail’s life.
She was a spitfire, a strong woman that didn’t back down, a mother of 5 girls who she loved so dearly, a grandma to a ton of kids (see photo!) who she made feel so special, a wife, a bowler, a golfer, a softball player, a sports fanatic, a great cook, and a beautiful person inside and out.
She loved when @keirsimon and I visited her when we were home and we loved it just as much.
She helped me fall in love with sports at a young age which changed my life forever and led me to where I am today.
She helped to get me the coolest summer job ever at Bryncliff Golf Course where I made countless memories and friends.
She was my first visitor (with my mom) when I moved to Dallas. She loved/hated that trip and thought the airport was just WAY to big (😂) but she loved the zoo.
She planned the best holiday parties at the bowling alley.
She had the most beautiful gardens and we loved walking them with her every time we went to her house.
She loved a quality “cheeseburg” and made the best cheesy potatoes.
She raised my mom, @michellemichalekreile, and she did it right bc my mom is the most wonderful, hardworking, giving, smart, fun person I know and her 4 sisters are just as incredible.
I could go on and on...
Gosh, she will be missed but memories of her will live on forever. I wish she could have met Xavier but I know she is looking down on him with the cute smile she always had when babies were around her.
Family is everything and we are so lucky to have an amazing one to lean on during these times whether near or far. ❤️ I love you all and know that you celebrated Gram’s life to the fullest on Saturday.
