Grandma, you have no idea how many lives you've touched. From your strength, courage, kindness, love, everyone could feel what a special person you are just from your beautiful smile. I'm only sad because of how much I love you and I can't physically hug or hold your hand in this life anymore, but thankful that you'll be the first to greet me when my time comes. Please watch over us, especially the babies. I know how much you love them and how they make you smile. We will love you always and miss you forever.

You're loving and only granddaughter,
- Gloria
