I will never forget the never wanting to end hugs with the "I love you" said, her singing, the stories she would tell, the sharing of God's words, and her laugh... I will never, ever, forget that laugh. Her and Grandpa were so happy together. They were apart for only a little bit but now they're back. I love that they're back together, but sad that neither are here. I know I'll see them again.
Love you all!
