Grandma, I think I speak for all of the grandchildren and even great-grandchildren when I say our hearts ache without you here. You loved us unconditionally, laughed with us uncontrollably, and taught us how to live uninhibited. We shall always remember you, and will always have a bond in between each other because of the experiences with you and grandpa. We will love you always.
