    Grandma~Although you are no longer physically with us, I must feel your presence because it stll feels like you are here. You have always had such a warm, caring demeanor and after seeing you I would always feel like no matter what “it” would be alright because you said so. I can still feel your embrace and the softness of your skin, the chuckle from your belly and it makes me smile. This has been my biggest loss but those memories I will forever cherish. I play “somewhere over the rainbow” by Israel kamakawiwoole in your memory. We used to listen to it together and cry. Only I was crying for a different reason, I knew this day would come and I would think of you. Only now it is much more beautiful and meaningful. You were our matriarch (oh how you loved that title : ), my mother in so many ways and now our angel. I love you higher than the clouds and bigger than the moon and never knew I would long for you so deeply. I miss you. Until we meet again my beautiful grandma… G

    We are sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Our mother passed away four and a half years ago. In thinking back there are lots of memories of your family since we are long time neighbors. It is hard to loose our loved ones, but they are resting in peace. May God comfort you all.
