My dear sweet Granny,

I am going to miss you so much that words cannot describe the way I feel. I will miss the sound of your voice, your laugh, your smile, our long talks, but most of all I will miss your hugs & kisses. I have been so blessed to have you in my life, loving me unconditionally. You were the strength of our family and now we must let you rest as we say goodbye. I know your place in heaven has a good view with Papa by your side smiling down on us and cheering us on as we move forward in our lives. Thank you for the box of memories that you and I have

You will always be in my heart.
Love always,

I will miss seeing Aunt Mary at the reunions and hearing her stories. I'll be thinking of her now praising and laughing and having a good time in heaven!!! Hope to see everyone on Wednesday if I can get off of work.
