Growing up I couldn't ask for a better grandma and best friend than her. I remember having to get a allergy shot, well it sure didn't happen the first time because I was so scared it took all the nurses to hold me down and even then I was moving to much so they couldn't do it. So when they rescheduled it and she came with me. I remember her holding my hand while telling me everything was going to be okay cause grandma was there and to look at her, I got my shot that day all because she, my grandma was there. Now she gets to watch me from heaven and even tho everyday is going to be hard I will always have the great memories of her and she will always have a piece of my heart. I love you grandma, now, forever and always
