Hi Grandma, It's been 4 years ago today since we lost you, suddenly and unexpectedly. Words can not even describe the emptiness, pain and loneliness in my heart, that I feel without You & Our Mom!❤️ I need you BOTH SO much and I ALWAYS will!❤️ I miss calling you BOTH and telling you every little thing, and just telling you BOTH EVERYTHING! ❤️ I miss your light, your wisdom, your love, your voice, your hugs and just.. YOU! You and Mom, My HERO'S and TWO of MY Favorite girls, in this WORLD! My 4 favorite girls are You, Mom and Our Daughter's!!❤️ Today makes it 4 years since we lost you so suddenly and not one day goes by that I don't think of You, Mom & Grandpa, and Miss You all so much. The pain is still so heavy in my heart. More holidays, without you all, will be coming soon, and they are so " bittersweet " Life is just so unfair sometimes.

In Loving Memory: It's been a year today since we lost you so suddenly. Words can never compare to the & my heartache that I feel every single day. Grandma, you were my ROCK, My Inspiration, My Wisdom, My Hero, & You were ALWAYS bigger then life to me. My Gramdma taught me manners, how to do dishes, how to make my bed & she also taught me how to tie my shoes. She raised me from my baby years until I was 6-7 years old. Sometimes, there's just no words, only tears.... I miss you so much Grandma. You were always bigger then life to me. Please tell our Mom & Grandpa that we all love them & miss them everyday. I Love You Grandma... Fly with the angels!!! <3

I feel so lost & heart broken. Please watch over us & give me the strength & courage to go through this next chapter of my life, without You, Mom & Grandpa in it. I need you now more then ever. Some things are just so unfair in life. I miss talking to you, making you laugh & miss your beautiful laughter. I Love You Grandma. We all do. You will always have a very "Special" Place in my heart.

My favorite times of the year. Fall, October, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas, will now always be my hardest times of the year. How am I going to go on celebrating the Holidays without my mom, grandma & grandpa now??!!! Grandma, please watch over us. Please give me the strength to get the kids & I through this. My life will never be the same without you in it. I could never imagine my life without you & I still can't, even though you are gone. It's so hard being without you. The physical pain that I'm going through & this pain in my heart is like something that I never imagined. I have to believe that I'll see you on the "other side" because if I don't believe that, I wouldn't be able to go on. I love you & you are so dearly missed, for always & eternity. I miss you everyday & I always will. I Love You Infinity. Love Always, Your Crystabell....

My Dearest Grandma, Our kids are sure going to miss you so very much, as we all will. You've touched so many Lives, & so many hearts. You've left foot prints on my heart for all Eternity. Grandma, you were always bigger than life to me. You've always been the apple of my eye. My beautiful Angel. My Precious, gentle, loving giving, & priceless Mom/ Grandma. You & I have always shared a very special bond. You will always be in my heart. Grandma, you have always been my world(along with mom, & the kids) My two favorite girls, you & Mom. You have always been my strength, My heart, & My Inspiration. Thank you, I never could have ever asked for better Grandma. You are & always will be my "PRICElESS,UNIQUE, ONE OF A KIND TREASURE!! When I think of you, I smile, I think of Everything soft, amazing, loving, strong, giving, caring & so much more. I will miss getting a Christmas card from you every year. I will miss the way that your eyes sparkled. I will miss the long tight hugs that you would give. I will miss holidays with you. I will miss your laughter, your wisdom, your advice, & Turning your cheeks beet red when I'd make you laugh. I'll miss my phone ringing & it being you. I'll miss calling you for no reason at all other then to say that I love you. I'm going to miss sharing things with you about the kids & I. I'm going to miss everything about you & so much more. I know that our kids love you & will miss you so so so very much Grandma. As I will also, for the rest of my life. Grandma, please give me the strength to get the kids & I through this, because right now, I don't know how. I don't know what to do with all of this grief, & all of this pain that is in my heart. You & my mom were always so strong. I admire you both so very much. I'm sure that you are off "Galavanting" with Mom & Grandpa now. :) I just want to say to you all, We Love You, We Miss You, & We Always will. Now, sleep with the "Angels" my precious angels. Love Always, Crystabell! :)

I will forever love you,miss you, & cherish you all for the rest of my life!! I love you so so so much Grandma. Thank you for everything. I'm sure going to miss you so much. I already do. Please watch over the family, Keep us safe, give us strength & a sign so that I know that you are all alright. Grandma, next to my kids, you & Mom were my special ladies & my whole entire life & my heart. I'm so lost without you & Mom. Some things are so unfair. We had plans & I still need you. I've never been able to imagine My life without my Mom & My Grandma. I still can not believe that you are Both gone. Grandma, you taught me my manners, how to wash my hands before dinner. How to make my bed at the age of 3 years old. You taught me how to get up on a chair beside you & help you with dishes. And you taught me so much more. I'm forever grateful, blessed & proud of you & my Mom. Thank you with all of my heart & soul.

Your phone calls, me calling you, knowing that I won't have any more holidays with our side of the family. I'm going to miss your beautiful face, your rosy cheeks, me making you laugh until your cheeks turn red. I'm going to miss so many things,& you, everyday for the rest of my life. Grandma, I'm so lucky, grateful & truly blessed to have had you for my grandma. You are so special to me,you always have been & you always will be.

Grandma, I know that you knew how much I loved you. I've always looked up to you, admired you & cherished you. I always will. But, I honestly do not know how to live & keep going without you. I guess,just one second, one moment, one breath, one hour,one step & one day at a time.. I love you so much my sweet darlin. I'm going to miss you calling me your "Sweet Darlin"Your Crystabell, & your "Precious" Sweet heart" Grandma, You are the most beautiful, loving, caring, giving, sweetest, Kindest, strongest, most "AMAZING" lady that I've ever known in my whole life.
