Grandma thank you for all the memories we shared together! I’m going to miss hearing your voice and your Happy Birthday phone calls are going to be my favorite memory I cherish of you ❤️. You never missed a birthday! I’m sooo happy I came to see you on Mother’s Day weekend and if we could redo that day I would’ve hugged you so much tighter and longer. We’re going to miss you!! Get your rest my love and don’t worry about Daddy we will take care of him. Give Bigmama a big hug for me ❤️ RIP
