Hello, I miss you so much. Thank you for everything you have ever done for me. You gave me the greatest priviledge of being your great granddaughter. The day you passed away was the first time i had EVER seen Gramma cry. I knew that then it was all over. It felt so unreal. I just wanted to wake up, from this horrible nightmare.
I miss you. Watch over scarlett
