First I want to start by telling you I love you. Second I want to apologize for not making it to your service. But I do know you knew you were loved ! Everytime mom spoke to you on the phone me in the background ( yelling) " Tell Grandma, I LOVE HER !" You taught me responsibly and opened my heart to caring for not only people but animals, my love for horses came from you. . One thing I will never forget is the summer I came to your house and thought I would stay up and play the piano. . You were not gonna have that 😆 you came in and made me turn it off and go to bed early. No drink before your dinner is done. . Grandma most of all I am thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to have a relationship with you, and spend a summer I will always remember. You will forever be loved & I will make it my mission to make sure we all keep in touch at least my generation grandma I will make you proud.
