Granny that’s what you were to me. I never had the opportunity to meet my grandparents, im thinking that if I had met my grandmother/grandmothers, that they would have been like you. I’m going to miss you giving me grief about my hair, every time I seen you you said give me some scissors I’m going to cut that hair myself!! I’ll never forgot that or the love that I seen that was so sincere between your granddaughter Becky. That was amazing to witness. You will be missed. Go run through them gates! Take time to rest though. You were/are loved.

Let us help you cope with grief; We hope with time you'll feel relief. We can't replace the one who's gone, But let our concern help you carry on.
