Grandma, you were and will always be our Native Queen. I am so honored and blessed to have you so many years. As I watched you grow older your beauty became more evident , and your strength was noticeable . I remember sitting with you on your burgundy couches where you would hold my hands, tell me you love me and also smack my tattoos . (Hehe) you were a true woman of the proverbs. I want you to know I have gained so much wisdom from you , every moment, every laugh, every tear, and lesson I will forever take with me. I will feel you in the wind, I will see you when the clouds pass by, I will look for you in the hummingbirds and most importantly I will hold you in my heart. I want you to know that I love you grandma and I am so honored to be your great granddaughter. Rest now my native queen , it is your time to live in all your glory with your loved ones who have passed on and your father whom you loved all your life. See you in the heavens .
