My dear grandmother, we have too many memories.. I don’t know where to start, my only favorite memory was loving you.. you were always there to help me through everything, you and my tia Betty Sue. How much i miss you and I will never forget you, i will never move on, the hardest part is it’s been almost a week since you’ve been gone and it doesn’t even feel real, I lost my bet with gabby always trying to be the best grandchild, we would always do what we can for you to make you happy. You are such an angel and you had the goofiest personality. I love you with all of my heart grandma, i always will. You will never be forgotten. We love you so much. no word can describe how I feel in my heart. I miss you.. Though god took you I know that you will always look after us, you always have. I love you always grandma.. 🥺😭
