There is so so much more I wanted to share at my grandmas memorial service.. like I said, it was the hardest thing to write because there is just too much to say.
I believe that part of our reason from god for moving back from Tennessee when we did, was so Cash (my son) and I could spend her last few months with her. So that I could care for her in such a way to give back some of the love she gave us. Nothing I did could ever compare to 29 years of love, lessons, joy, and care you gave me. I wish so bad that I would have told you just how much you truly meant to me and Cash. I always thought I had more time. The last time I saw you, being in healthcare and knowledgeable of these circumstances, I recognized how much denial I was in that night. I just couldn’t accept it. You were ready to go, but I wasn’t ready to let you.
It was the most beautiful memorial and you would have been so happy to see all of the lives you touched; it was a full house! Not a seat left. I’m so happy that all except one grandchild was able to make it here for her. She would have been so so happy to see all of us together.
I love you so so much grandma. I could never forget you if I tried. Rest in Heaven until we meet again.
