Granny , I love you so much . We have had so many great memories together. I’m the grand daughter that would jump in her truck last minute and drive all the way from Cheyenne Wyoming just to visit you for one day . Then drive all the way back home . Every chance I got I would come . Our Gambling at Choctaw was my favorite memory . I would walk around the entire casino looking for you ! And we would smile and laugh and have so much fun every time I came . Granny I’m sorry I couldn’t be there at your funeral . I am 36 weeks pregnant and I can not travel . But I hope you know that I would have came if I wasn’t so far along . I miss you already . And I love you so much .
