To my little G.
My Granny Grunt....
I NEVER knew caring for you during the time I did, would change me forever. I will NEVER regret a moment of our time together! I cherish the memories made on our Traci/Granny adventures! I started out to show you LOVE and dignity and I am grateful to know in my soul that in the end, you knew you were loved unconditionally....for no good reason! Just cause! I'll miss painting your finger nails every week and Ill never eat another tomato biscuit without thinking of you! I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK, G! You will be forever missed and loved.
Love you always and forever, to the moon and back, all the numbers in the world, to infinity and beyond, plus 2!

I was sorry to see where your Mother had passed away. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I know Sunday being Mother's Day will be especially sad. May God flood your mind with sweet memories of your Mother just when you miss her the most. God's comfort and blessings are my prayer for you and yours.
