    My dearest Grandma,
    It’s been 2 days since you went away…I want you to know I love you more than anything and that I will always remember you. Most of my fondest childhood memories have you in them. I remember getting off the bus everyday and playing dress up in your high heels and clothes and that toast you made me with just enough grape jelly and butter. I remember going with you everyweek to get your hair done and when we finished we would go to Hardees and both of us would get a chicken sandwhich!!! I will miss most of all you rubbing my back and that heavy handed pat you always gave all the grand kids to the hinny while you laughed….Most of all I will miss you sense of humor. There will never be another like you!! I hope you are up there with grandaddy and making me some chicken salad :) Love you always and forever
