My dear and beautiful grandma, I will forever keep the memory of you, grandpa, and dad in my heart. I have been so blessed to have you as my grandma for 30 years. I hope you know how special you are to me and how much I loved you and will always love you.
Your love and care for me is beyond words. From day one you were always there. I will always remember the story that you shared with me when you came to the hospital asking mom, “is the baby born yet?” You said that you came when I was born and that I looked just like dad.
You helped difficult moments become easier, you made life itself easier. I will miss your gentleness, your tender heart, your smile, your laugh, and all your words of comfort. Most importantly, I will miss you.
Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me and the family. I will always love you and I will never forget you.
