I will put up some picture of you and I soon.
I miss you. A lot. Even though you were very quiet for the most part, The silence in our home without you…is deafening. Ever since you left…the silence is so loud… it hurts.Sometimes I think I’m ok and then all of a sudden I have a complete hysterical panic attack about you. I am always thinking of the good memories with you but then realizing you’re really not here anymore…is something I sometimes can’t fathom and doesn’t feel real and then all of a sudden…it literally hits me. Like a punch in the stomach…That you’re gone. And it’s an overwhelming emotion with no name.
I really wanted to show you that I could make you proud and make a beautiful happy life for myself and others. I’m sorry you didn’t get to see that. I always wanted to make you proud of me. When I get better and I’m not sick anymore, I promise that I will make you proud of me. I hope I can soon.
Thank you for giving me the most wonderful mother. You would be so proud of the beautiful human she is. I am very lucky.
You were a gifted nurse and such a strong, independent woman and I want you to know I looked up to that. I strive to be that and more and it’s because of you. I know you always asked me to go to medical school and I’m sorry I couldn’t do that and make you feel proud to say your granddaughter went to medical school,
So I may not have wanted to go to Med school but I have always taken care of people as long as I can remember and I really care about how I treat and care for others so I may not become a nurse or Doctor but I will end up doing something where I take care of people and I hope in that, you’ll be proud.
I know that was you the other night. Thank you…I needed to know you are still around.
Just know, you may not physically be here… But I will never forget you and I will carry you in my heart forever, until I see you again one day.
I love you with all I got,
Your granddaughter, Brittney.

I miss you. I’m so sorry that I wasn’t able to give my speech about you. So I didn’t get to tell everyone all our beautiful memories together. I know you hear my prayers to you, of missing and loving you everyday. I’ll never stop talking to you. You know everything I would’ve said in that speech because I prayed it to you.
But, I want everyone to know who you are to me and many others. So for the rest of my life, I’ll tell those who I cross paths with in this life, the story of YOU and the story of Us…and in that I will never stop letting your legacy live on.
My beautiful wonderful grandma, may you finally be completely healed and whole again heart, soul and mind in heaven now. I know your heart is mended from your heartbreaks that you endured and that it is not taking over you anymore. You’re Free. Like you always deserved to be. I’m so sorry you had that disease. I’m incredibly grateful that I could take care of you from beginning till the end. I felt honored to care for you. To give back to you,
how you cared for me as my grandmother. Now, Dance your butt off with my amazing grandfather, Alfredo, to some romantic Cuban music! Or some Frankie blue eyes! Never stop dancing and may heaven be an eternity of bliss.
May you feel a love wrapped around you forever in heaven and from those still on earth who will never stop loving you…may you feel that for eternity. I’ll always remember our special bond and the gift of love and compassion you gave to me always. Thank you so much for being my grandma. You were more than a grandma to me. You were my confidant…you were my best friend when I was a teenager and I didn’t realize that till I was old enough to look back in time and think about all the many, many memory's of our special time together. My memory’s of the two of us talking from morning till night, laying in your bed together to watch your favorite movies on the Lifetime channel. I could go on and on.
I love you with my entire heart and soul infinitely.
