Dear Grandma,

Thank you for being there for us when times were rough. You meant the world to me but I know you are finally with family. Thank you for watching me and letting me watch cartoons when you really wanted to watch TV. I will miss your waffles and pancakes, the coffee with more creamer than coffee, letting me dye your hair gray even though it some how turned blue. Thank you for everything.

I love you.

Your granddaughter,

Amy Walker

I love and miss you so much Mommy. The days pass and I cannot function it seems without a past memory or the last time I spoke to you coming back and crippling me. I know you were scared and in pain and it frustrated me so that I could not take that away. Although, I tried so many times. I miss our conversations when it became necessary for me to feed you . You wanted French toast and bacon and eggs , I made them and you looked at me with love that morning and told me that you prayed to God to bless me for taking care of you-you called me an angel ( I told you I am far from being an angel but being your daughter -I am proud to be that) and told me you loved me, you asked me to forgive you for any wrongs in the past, we cried and I told you there was nothing to forgive you for you took care of us and loved us and protected us the best you could-I love you Mom . I am so devastated that I no longer have you here with me to talk too. I know you were tired and you want to be with Toni , Dad, and Happy. You called out crying for your father and Mother. And I cried with you and held you. I will take care of the lil fat cat. You loved her so -she was chosen by Toni before she died. A mother should never lose a child , no matter how old. It changed you Mom but, you were and still are my mother and I hope I could give you enough love to help make the pain less. You will be with your family now and no pain. Your favorite story was of Job in the bible you said that he suffered some of life's worse torment and tortures because his love for God was that strong and that you felt a connection to Job -you suffered the loss of your love, your daughter-so many things but you did say no one suffered as Job did. You told me you will hopefully meet him one day soon. Please remember me as I will remember you. I miss and Love you forever and always.
