Condolence & Memory Journal

To say you're the greatest grandma wouldn't even be close to describe how great and loving you were. I'll always cherish the memories of the many sleepovers at your house growing up. How you never said no when I was afraid of the dark and wanted to sleep with you in your bed. From sitting on your front porch with grandpa flying the "airplanes" off the trees. I'll never forget you sitting with me in the hospital. Making sure I had plenty of pajamas to wear while there. From your smile that lit up the room and you waving at me in the house when you would see me walk around the corner. Your memories ,caring nature and sense of humor will live on in all of us that you touched dearly. Your presence left an amazing footprint in my heart and you will never be forgotten. I know you are so happy to be reunited with grandpa again. Even though you are missed truly down here. Give everyone up there a hug and kiss for me until we can meet again. I love you!
