I miss you so much. We had our great times and we had our conflicts but even in our conflicts, you love me. Thank you for helping me with the raising the girls, you helped me when I lost everything in 2008, you were the Heart of our family. I will miss going to the store with me I cried the other day at the store and felt very alone. You showed me how to love my family. No words will ever express the sorrow of missing your presence in my life. I Love You, Mama.

Grandma Josie,
You were such a beautiful blessing to me. I love you for being my grandma. You always showed me love and I will always be so thankful for all you did for me when I was younger. I am so happy that you are dancing with Jesus and I can't wait to dance in heaven with you.
