I remember when she would walk into the room and start dancing really silly, starring at me waiting for me to laugh. God she loved to laugh. Was always smiling. I’ll never forget her kind eyes, and her smile even in her very last days in the hospital. She was such a strong, friendly, generous, loving, kind, and hard working woman. One of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, and to be her grandchild is the biggest honour I’ll ever have the pleasure of carrying. I promised her to live fully, honestly, and clean for the rest of my life. The biggest gift I can give her is fulfill that promise. I’m going to do my best, in her honour to live that way. I love you so much baba. I’ll miss you every single day while I’m breathing on this Earth. I know you are in heaven above, with God holding you tightly in his arms, watching over us until we meet again. Xxxxxxo.
