Grandma, You were always there for me. You gave me great amazing advice. I miss you so much and not a day goes by that I don't think about you.. You mean so much to me and I'll see you again someday, but in God's presence... You touched so many people and impacted so many peoples' lives. I am so grateful that you are my great grandma. I love you so much.

All the fun times we shared and the days/evenings we spent down there while I was growing up playing cards or board games was one of the best memories I had. She never treated any child as an aunt but as a grandchild and some of the best advice I got about life and God came from her. To me, she wasn't just an aunt but another grandmother who I could turn to and had talks with. I am so fortunate to have the childhood I had knowing I not only had my Nan and Pap as grandparents but also my Uncle Bob and Aunt Vio who I looked at as well from spending so much time there over the years. God bless Aunt Vio.

I love you Grandma. You are not only my grandma, you are my mother, my best friend, my everything. I know you're not in pain any more and that makes me happy, but I still wake up every morning, wanting to call you. Now I have no one to call. Your unconditional love has made me the woman I am today. I love you and I hope to see you again soon.

Uncle Bob and Family,
So sorry for your loss. Aunt Vio was not only my aunt but my best friend, confident, and I will miss her dearly.
She always had time to help others regardless how she felt and stopped what she was doing just to spend time with you.
I will always have her in my heart and remember what we shared. I loved her dearly.
May God Bless and May Aunt Vio rest in peace.

A poem I wrote dedicated my the greatest grandma in the world:

She was a Jewel with a Legacy

One day that the family never wanted to come
Is the day Jesus carried Violet home.
We know that there's no more suffering or pain,
But for us life will never be the same.
She was the backbone, the rock of the family;
No one could ever replace her – that would never be.
She loved her husband, children, grandchildren and even greats!
And her nieces, nephews and those she “adopted” late.
She was jewel in the rocks that shined right through;
She loved you unconditionally, even though she didn't agree with what you were about to do.
She wasn't afraid to speak up when you were wrong;
and voicing her opinion about being “Jesus Strong”.
The impact she left on us will never fade away;
We must continue her legacy day after day.
She gave us morals and values to live by;
This is what she would want us to do – instead of cry.
She was our shero, our confidant and our comforter;
All the family's issues she would definitely bear.
But now is her time, because she's now at peace like she's been longing for,
She's with Jesus looking down us for evermore.
So be careful on what you might do or say;
Because you know she will send you a sign in some sort of way.
Just because she's not here in the flesh;
It's this great legacy that she has left.
And that light of a jewel will continue to shine through;
Even at times when we don't know which way to turn or what to do.
Today our hearts may be broke and we don't want to believe that she is gone;
But just remember that her legacy is in each one of us that lives on.
