My grandmother was one of the most giving people I know and with such strong convictions as a woman. I miss her dearly and life as I know it will never be the same. God was ready for you to join papaw, but I most definitely wasn't ready to let you go my beautiful granny! I know you are always with me and I will forever carry you memories no matter when I am. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MORE THAN FOREVER AND A DAY!
