Grandma,

Thank you for your love and your laughter through the years! It was always fun to have sleepovers at grandmas house growing up! We got to dress up, we got to wear your jewelry and we got to watch Nickelodeon. I always enjoyed playing the electronic games that you had at your house and eating cheese and ham sandwich is cut into triangles. Thank you for your love and your wisdom through the years! Until I see you again...
