Mawmaw,
I am going to miss you but I know I will see you again. And just like I promised I will watch over mama.
You are a beautiful woman, with a beautiful soul and a fighter. I can only hope that one day I will be half the woman you were.
Until I see you again enjoy Heaven and give everyone loves from me.
Love Angie
