December 5, 2018
My grandma was my mom and dad all in one. My parents had me at 19 so they were young and weren't exactly ready to take the responsibility. My mother was a 19 year old teenager, and my dad was in prison. So when i wasn't with mom, i was with grandma. My grandma taught me so many things i know today, you can say she's my O.G. but i would much rather call her mama. She always kept a secret, and she would always help when you needed her to. Anybody was welcome in her home always. Maybe about 80% of people in this room have lived in her house at one point and time. She always had the best hugs and the best hand to hold. Im left now like what am I going to do now that you're gone? and i swear i hear someone saying what she would want me to do. I was depressed when she passed, didn't want to eat or move or interact, but knowing how she was, she wouldn't want me like that. I didn't only lose my grandma, i lost my mom, and my bestfriend. Everyone knows it was always me and her and grandpa at the house. I learned a lot of remedies and recipes and wise sayings to tell my kids someday. We're all going to miss her smile, her laugh, her stubbornness, and ofcourse her open arms.
