Seeing you yesterday laying there just broke my heart. It still legit doesent seem real that u r never waking up and coming over to my house to see me or my kids again. You was the glue that kept our family together and going. God I wish I could have 1 more day to see you and tell you goodbye. You and your son joe adopted me and my siblings and never treated us any different than your own. I will live on and try to make you proud of me. Until we meet again grandma... rest in heaven angel. You will never be forgotten. We all love and miss u so much already
