Grandma I need you! I need you to show me how to grieve you, you taught me everything but how do I miss you, how do I not take for granted that you're going to answer everytime I call? Why does losing you have to be the hardest lesson in life not to let a day go by and tell the ppl I love how I feel? Grandma I'm not going to say all the I wish I had done things differently bc I wouldn't have gotten the lesson you being the great teacher you are. You don't even realize how much I love you. You always saw the granddaughter that you loved instead of the monster that alot of ppl see in me. Thank you for loving me Grandma thank you for letting me share in your life thank you for always answering me when you didn't have to thank you for looking at me and letting me see love in your eyes I'm going to miss that most for me that is rare. I'll be looking for you every day and in every lil thing. I'll know it's you bc you'll shine the brightest. I love you MORE Grandma

You ask me once how I see GOD in you. All my life you answer every question with God said. You showed forgiveness even to those of were not worthy of it. You faced life knowing God's will was not always your own.Everyday for you was a blessing and a gift from God. You touched the lives of everyone you came in contact with and you always shared your faith and love of God. Because of you including myself found the love of God and his many blessing. You leave a legacy behind that I know you are proud of .As we are all proud to be part of you. Your memory will live on through each of us. I will see you again one day till then. I love you always.
2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.

I'm glad I had the privilege of knowing such a great woman. I took care of her for years and she was a client but very quickly became family to me. We would sit and talk and make cookies which was our favorite thing to do. She was my 1st client and also my favorite. She has and always will have a special place in my heart. She was just as special to me as I was her. Now she is in a place she couldn't wait to be and I know she's smiling down still loving every one of us. No one else like her! I love you sweet angel and miss you! πŸ˜‡ πŸ’—
