Granny u were the blessing in our lives
A treasure we will always cherish
For the times we laughed
The times we cried
And the the laughter we shared for u were always a Angel before your time.
My heart is broken to see u no more but a space has been given for now no more pain and suffering cause your gone to heaven.
Our bond is right as we all know the calls the meals the rides and time shared will be in my heart forever as an angel has taken her ride! So be it mom as you were tired and sore but pappa has met u at the front door.
And now I say watch over us all cause we too will with you but until then u keep up your strength cause you both are in a safe place.
Always loved and will be missed beyond words.
