Words can't begin to express how much I love you and how deeply I will miss you. You have not only been my Gramma but also my friend, my confidant, and my partner in crime for my entire life. Even though I can't see you anymore I will look for you in the stars, in the spring breeze, and when the flowers you loved so much begin to bloom. Fly high my sweet Gramma until we meet again.❤
