I miss you every day ,that you are gone. You were a perfect Grand Mother that Loved Me with All of Your Heart. You taught me things about people of this world and what to keep me eyes open to. I know how bad it hit you,and how hard it was for you,when my mom died. I miss her as bad as I miss you. My Mom and I , talked for hours every day. Just as I know that you and Uncle Mike talked and discussed things every day. I have never forgot anything that I learned from , or discussed with either you or mom. I can remember I as if it were an hour ago. I am sure Mike remembers everything as if it were an hour ago as well. I know that you must be very disappointed . I know ,from what my mom and I discussed , about your final wishes and documents, that things are not being carried out as planned. I understand that you are gone and I look past that, as I cannot let it get into my head,as the loss of you is enough pain to bear. I think of you every single day and miss you very much. I can see you at the wall and tell you , I Love You and kiss the wall where you are. But it will never replace the one single place that seems real to me ,that where you are. That place is my memory. I Love You Very Much and Miss You Dearly, Grandma.

Every day that you are gone, I think of you and how much I love you. You were a kind and caring grandmother, that wanted to teach me how the world really is and what kind of people ,to watch out for, or keep an open eye on them. I remember everything , exactly how you presented it, in my youth. I know how much you loved my mother, and how hard it hit you when she died. I talked to my mother a lot. Just as you and Uncle Mike talked about things. I am quite sure Mike has never forgotten anything that the two of you discussed, and remembers like it was 2 hours ago. From knowledge given to me from my mother, and then the way things were carried out after you left us, I am sure that you are very disappointed , of things that were not carried out the way you had documented and discussed. I know that it is not your fault, as I continue to tell you every time that I am there to see you and put new flowers in your little vase and kiss the wall of your final resting place. I Love You very much Grandma, I will never forget you and Grandpa,and all of the countless memories of our time together. I could not be more proud of where and who I came from. Very good people!!!!! I will always miss you, and find myself going to where you are in my memory. The one thing about you that still remains today.

As we near the 6th full month of your loss, I cannot help to feel the emptiness of your absence from this earth. I will always cherish in my heart , all that my memory stores of you and everything you have taught and shared with me ,from my childhood and on. I miss you very much and will never get over your loss , and honestly I will never learn to live with it as well. I will never forget you and as long as I'm alive and you are in my memory, you will always be here and with me. I Love You and will always love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
