Jennifer - I am very sorry for your loss. I know she meant a lot to the entire family. I can sympathize and empathize with you as I lost my grandmother last year. It is a very tough road to grieve the loss of your grandmother but I know she will always be watching over you. She will always be with you in spirit. Don't be afraid to talk to her when something reminds you of her or if you just need to talk outloud. I know she will be listening. I am here if you ever need anything.

My Beautiful Babcia,
I am so blessed to have had you in my life from the very beginning. Our memories together are endless. The time I’ve been blessed to spend with you by my side has been a gift. You were and always will be an everlasting part of me. I couldn’t have asked for a more loving, sassy, funny, uplifting babcia. The sun truly shone the day you became my babcia. There will never be a day when I don’t think of you and wish you were by my side. I love you, I will forever keep you in my heart, and I know you will be watching over us.
