    My beautiful Grandma …. Oh how I will miss you…. I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what I will miss the most. The way you would call my house looking for my Mom, you and me going to Bingo, the way you, Mom and I use to hang out for hours at a time just running around shopping and laughing at each other or just the fact that I can’t hear your voice anymore. I can’t tell you how very Blessed I feel knowing that I could call you mine, more so blessed that my children could call you theirs. I am happy that you are not in pain or have to have any tubes anymore… I will miss your sweet face… Until we meet again my sweet Grandma, please know just how much I love you and cherish every memory.

    My Dearest Mom,
    I miss you so much it just breaks my heart. I know you are not suffering and you went peacefully.
    But that does not take away the pain in my heart and the rest of the family. We all loved you and I’m sure you knew that towards the end. I’m so glad we were all able to spend as much time with you before you departed from us. It’s so hard just knowing that you’re not here with us anymore. It leaves a void in our hearts that time cannot heal. You were such a fighter with all you went through the past 5 to 10 years. You fought with everything you had in you. And God kept you with us as long as you could hold on. But you got so weak and tired he called you home in his loving care. Just knowing we have a BEAUTIFUL ANGEL like you watching over us now means so much to us all. But it still doesn’t bring you back when we need you. I love you so very much Mom. I just want you back but it’s to late for that now.You will forever be in my heart and I will never stop loving you or forget you still are my Loving,and Caring Mother. You always had a way of making people laugh somehow, someway! Every time I see a penny on the floor or the ground it will make me think of those funny moments when you had to pick them up if they were on heads. Until we meet again Mom I’ll love you always and forever !!!
