What I would do to walk through your door and see your face light up and the smile on your face one last time, you weren’t “just a grandma” you were my best friend, my advisor, my rock! You had the most Beautiful soul of anyone I’ve ever met! I don’t know how to go on without you but for you I will figure it out. I love you soooo much Grammy and will forever miss you..
