My dear grandma~ I miss u already so so much. my grandmother had faith everlasting and I know she has touched many people here, just as much as she has touched me and was such a huge part of my childhood and adult life. I have the best memories of her and even though it hurts right now, I know it will get easier. I know she is up in heaven and she is able to breathe, and she is able to walk better, and she is happy and she had so many reunions with the people she loves up there. I can just see the party they must be having! i love you grandma rest peacefully I will see you when I get there!
