    The day I met my Mother-In-Law, she welcomed me with open arms and had loving words to share with me. She set the bar high on how to treat people. She inspired me to put my best foot forward and I hope to never let her down. She was a shinning example for all families to learn from. Love unconditionally, smile quickly, and embrace warmly.
    She will be Loved, Admired, and Missed for all time.

    To my “grandmama”,

    I love you dearly and you are already so missed.

    You were the most amazing woman. You taught me strength, perseverance, and wisdom, as you were the rock who led us all by example. Most of all, you stressed the importance of love, family, and your infamous “common sense” stories :)

    I know you are happy now, and are at rest with those whom you loved so dearly, and who left you all too soon.

    Be at peace, grandma, as I’m sure grandpa welcomed you with open arms, and who you finally get to be with once again.

    I love you,

    Your grandson.
