We were so sad to hear of Grandma Downey's passing. We too remember the adults sitting around her table drinking coffee, playing cards, laughing and talking, while all of the kids ran around her house and played. She was a very kind and gentle woman and will be greatly missed. We are thinking of you and love you very much.

Marti Cates Berger
