My grandma, what can I say about grandma that my beautiful little cousin Alexus didn't already say. I can only agree with everything she said and confirm her words are exactly how our grandma was. She was the best! She was the person you could go to or call to help make things better. She was a safe place to land and had the best hugs! She was definitely the glue to our family and loved us all so much that going on without her will be tough on us all but I know she would want us to greive, celebrate her life she had here, and move on until our chores are through and we join back up in that kingdom of heaven. So with that being said I have to say...Grandma, thank you so much for everything you've ever done for me and all us kids! We all knew no matter what you were in our corners and that if we needed you you'd be there. The void left since that windy Wednesday day when the wind could freeze your soul and God called you home has left us froze in time a bit for now. But I have hope and the faith to know we will get through this and see you again when our times through because you told me so all my life and I know that's how it will be. I love you so much and miss you terribly grandma and I'll see you again someday.

My grandmother was always someone who made you feel a welcoming aura in her home. She reminded me of the sun,and knew I was always a shy one and quiet around the family. I was someone who was very distant from affection,but with her. I'd always run to her even when I became an adult and would hug her. She was someone who was the true light of our family and you'd have nothing but the deepest love and affection for her patience and kindness with everyone. My grandma is the most vibrant butterfly on this earth now. She still lives inside of us and guides us wherever she travels. I love you,Grandma
