    Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you Grandma. I miss you so so much…Out of all the things you taught me, you never taught me how to live without you. Even though it’s been over a year now, I am still trying to learn and figure out how to do just that. I managed alright with Grandpa being around, but now that he is with you, not only am I still learning to live without you physically here, I also have to learn to live without him. It sucks sometimes, but I know your watching over us. You were one of, if not the strongest, most kindhearted, giving person I know. I miss you!
