Dear “Mommy”,
I will miss you so much and I am deeply saddened by your departure. I have always known you as my nana, and to you I was your Granddaughter, there was no “step” family when it came to our family! I have so many wonderful memories with you and my Tata growing up. Get togethers at the motel and getting ice cream! I remember you were the first one to give me a tortilla with butter and I thought it was the most amazing thing ever! Haha I will also remember our road trip to El Paso with you, my mom, and EB in the back of my tiny car! But hey, we made it! And I am so happy you were able to meet Mike and EB. I could really go on and on, but I’ll remember and cherish the time I had with you and have peace in knowing you are flying high, walking the streets of Gold in your beautiful mansion! You hit the Jackpot! Your unconditional love will continue to be passed on through the generations. I love you so very much, say hello to my Tata and my Dad.... so long for now, until we meet again 💕
