My sweet, dear grandma. She was always there to listen, give advice, or lend a helping hand. She was so good with her great-grandchildren, when they were babies up until they were grown. She could be very serious, but she also had a silly side to her. She could make my kids laugh so hard, all the time laughing along with them. And generous, she would do anything for those kids. She was so special. She had the warmest smile, and the most beautiful eyes. It's not the same down here without you Nana. When you left, you took a part of my heart with you. You're with all your loved ones now. But most importantly you are back with the love of your life, Grandpa Engel. I hope you use your beautiful voice to sing with the angels. Someday I will see you again. Until then my sweet grandma, enjoy Heaven. Finally you are where you have wanted to be for some time now. Rest peacefully. I will love you and miss you forever.

I hope you're dancing in the sky, and I hope you're singing in the Angel's choir. And I hope the angels know what they have. I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived. Dance with grandpa forever little lady. I love you with all my heart. Until we meet again
