Dear Grammy,

We miss you so much already. Thanks for all the shopping trips and chocolate (we have found all your stashes, I’m sure there is more to find). You were such a strong determined woman. I learned so much from you. Don’t worry, Princess, Puff and Jackie are in good hands. Although I refuse to buy them anymore chicken nuggets.

Love you.
