    Grandma you were my rock, the glue that held everyone together. I could tell you anything and you always made me feel better. I’m going to miss our conversations and I’m especially going to miss your sense of humor. I thank God for giving me a wonderful grandma like you. You are in heaven now dancing in the stars with Grandpa. I will think of you every time I see a beautiful flower, every time I feel a breeze in your garden and every time I see Grace and Ava smile. I love you. You were the one and only. Thank you God for all the time I got to spend with my grandma. It’s going to be difficult to get by with out you, but it brings me peace to know that you are in heaven. I love you!
