Hiii GG,

I just want to say that I’m glad that I got to meet you. Remember the dinner at Daves Wong and the time I went over to your house with my daughter Emily and I painted your cute little pretty perfect nails. Good memories. I will never forget you. Sadly, I won’t be able to get to paint your nails ever again but I’m pretty sure them pretty Angels up in heaven will do a better job than me. Rest easy GG.

Love, Thuy

Thank you for being my grandmother and your unconditional love. I have learned so much from you and promise to continue making you proud. I promise to be the best me I can be for you. I will never forget all you taught me. I will always remember at 4 o’clock your first glass of wine and you were ready to watch Ellen. I have so many memories I can’t possibly pick one. I love you, I love you , I love you! ❤️❤️❤️
