i loved my grandma very much. and i know she loved me, too. she was so proud of all of us grandkids, and her great grandbabies. a very special woman who taught me alot. she taught me that family means more than anything. to love and to love hard. she was one of the few people in my life who wanted to listen to anything i had to say. she cried and laughed with me, and helped me to be strong during my parent’s divorce. she was a good mom, and a great grandmother. i will miss her everyday i am alive, and then there will be a grand reunion.
Sorry about the loss of your dear love one. Death is an enemy to us all. God will actually swallow up death forever, and certainly wipe the tears from all faces. -Isaiah 25:8
