Mom I think of you every day and I miss you so much it hurts. I promised you if you needed to go we would be ok and we will look out for Harold and we are. Mom I have been trying to be ok but then I see you in my mind and want to call you and I can't. Mom you are my #1 BFF I could tell anything to. I will see you again one day. I love you Moma! We all miss you! Rip

R.I.H Grandma Gertrude ❤️
You meant & mean so much more to me than I think you'll ever know. Your more to me than just a woman who without saying or question & never once made me feel like I wasn't part of the family let alone your granddaughter too! My childhood was you, coming into the house, always greeted me with a hug & big ole kiss on my cheek! Then instantly asking me what I wanted to eat, to drink while already cooking something for Harold. Me & Tiff wanted to just take all your pretty baby dolls & run away lol & I think you knew that. You always made sure we had a baby or toys to play with so we wouldn't touch the ones we wasn't allowed too lol (GOOD MEMORIES!) Staying the night with you was going to bed happy , feeling safe, with my belly full & knowing I'll wake up to the smell of the best homemade breakfast! Not a moment don't go by then & now I see Elvis & don't think of you! When my own Family didn't want to be apart of my life it never phased me as a child or today because of you! I was always so welcomed as your grandchild that today as a Mother & woman myself I have no hard feeling towards Penny Harding or How Abbott (My Dad) Family... Because of YOU!!! You'd think she would thank you, but who cares because I have 2 grandma's just like the rest of the kids. One was my Mother's Mom & the 2nd was YOU! ❤️ Tell Everyone I Love & Miss them so much & always keep watching over our Family! The day will come we will all reunite. You are one of a kind & it's hard to hear life has to go in without you. My condolences go out to each & everyone Grandma Gertrude touch or got the honor to have been in the presence of her. God Bless You All. And We Love You All!!
