To Jack, Parnell, Robert and the Green and Smith Families.
This is the hardest letter to write. Lots of tears flowing some for the sadness I feel some are tears of joy for Girlie Green being part of our lives.
As my adopted grandmother she showed me the love, care and concern just as if I have always been her grand-daughter.
Open letter to Grand-Mother Girlie Green. I lay awake at night and listen to your whispers in my heart that I will carry forever. I hear you telling me don't cry for me, Although the sun has set for me, miss me but let go, for this is my journey that I must take alone. When you feel depressed remember the good times we had remember the good times we had remember the laughter we shared.
Thank you God for sending me such a precious grandmother. I will remember all the talks we had. I will remember our day every Sunday together. I will remember how you greated me at the door with a smile, a hug and a kiss wearing a differant pair of earrings each time. I will always remember that we were never able to leave your house without having prayer and no matter what might had gone on during the day when I left your home I always left with joy and peace in my heart.

With our Heartfelt Sympathies,
Justin and Patsy St.Christopher

Sad to hear of Girlie's passing, but I know that Heaven is a better place with her there. Girlie lived just five houses down the street on Simon and she took care of my daughters for years, even when the youngest was slightly too old for her crew. She had watched her since a baby and couldn't say no! What a great Neighbor, Christian, and Role Model for my daughters! You make me laugh Girlie just remembering you, Thank You for being in our lives!

As a single mother with 3 chldren, GG was a godsend. She cared for my children as if they were her own. She loved them and taught them so much. She is a big part of why they are the people they are today. She will never be forgotten and holds a special place in all of our hearts.

I have so many fond memories of GG. GG was a huge part of raising me, my brother, and my sister. GG was my baby sitter from as early as I can remember until I was "old enough to take care of myself" (according to me). But it was GG who taught me how to properly answer to someone. She would call our names..."Erin!" If I answered with "what?"...she just called again. It wasn't until we said..."yes, GG" did she continue. There was nobody like GG...never will be. Having children of my own, I have told my mom and dad many times..."If only I could find a 'GG', I would have the best babysitter out there." She wasn't just my babysitter though. She truly loved us, and we felt it. I loved reading about her past, I never knew any of those things. She was just our GG, and we loved her. Thank you for helping to raise me, my brother, and my sister. We will always love you.

GG was like a second mother to my brother, sister and me. She changed my diapers when I was a baby, taught me how to put together a puzzle, and taught me the manners I know today. She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed.

GG,
Thank you for all the years you spent taking care of me as a child. I will always remember the card games we played, the giant building block forts, and the tiny plastic deer you gave me. Thank you for making my childhood magical.

Hassie I'm sorry, but not saddened to hear about Jack's Mother. I am so sorry for the pain caused by the loss of a loved one, but I am not saddened for Mother Green. I pray that my life will be as complete as her's and that I will joyously wait in anticipation to see our Lord. My prayers continue for the comfort of the family.
