    Dear mom, i know that i dont need to write this because you already know how my heart
    yearns for a hug from you. The last time i seren you . You hugged me in a special way. A hug
    that i have never felt before from you. It was almost like you knew that it would be our last
    hug. Im sorry mom i didnt come one day earlier. It hurts me so bad that i couldnt touch your
    warm face one last time before you left. Its not fair because it was the same with dad. I was
    a day late.. i know you understand but i dont. I miss you mom. I miss you very much. I thank
    God that he blessed me with a mother like you...God speed my precious mother. You will
    always remain within my heart.... when its my time to i pray that you will be at the gates to
    give me that hug that i missed...Love you momma...

    You were the most amazing, special caring person I have ever known. It's hard to believe you are gone already, I will miss everything about you. Words alone don't do justice
    when expressing how much you are missedand loved. You truly were the best Gram
    anyone could ever ask for. I love you grandma. Xoxo😔

    My sweet dear mother my Memories of you are longer then I could write I will miss you calling me
    everyday wanting something or just to talk about everyone in the family trying to find out what’s
    going on with everyone cause there was something always going on on with somebody. I will miss
    taking you to the casino to collect just your coupons you would say but we all knew you had more
    money stashed away and I would always so ok don’t be calling to late I have to go work or Jeremy
    has to go to work and we don’t want to be picking you up late but that never failed you never left
    there at a decent time. I’ll remember all your stories you would tell and boy you told good stories
    every detail no filter when you was talking. I’ll miss your beautiful face and your comforting words
    you always had for everyone. I can go on and on about you mom cause your are truly the best mom
    ever. Oh my dear mom what I’m I going to do with out you I love you and I’ll be missing you until you
    hold me in your arms again tell dad I love him to so much

    I'm so happy that your at peace but it breaks my heart knowing
    your gone. Nothing will ever be the same without you here. you
    left your mark on each and every one of us because you were
    such a beautiful person, filled with so much love and hope for
    everyone. It's not fair that you left us so soon.
    I love you more than anything in the universe and I miss you so
    much. I'll be thinking of you always, my love 😔 . Rest
    peacefully in heaven grandma.
