I am so sorry to hear that Grandma, as I was proud to call her, passed away. She and Grandpa gave me an amazing time in the States and I wish I would have had more time to reconnect with her. Grandma was an amazing person, who was so kind to me when I needed it the most. Her little messages she sent me from time to time always brought a smile to my face. Again, I am very sorry to hear she has passed away, and my thoughts and prayers are with her family. Ich denke an euch <3
