When someone we love dies, the heartache and grief can be great. I hope that you can be comforted knowing that God cares for you and sees your pain. ( 1 Peter 5:7) "He is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) May you find comfort and relief during this grievous time, as you cherish the precious memories.

We didn't always see eye to eye and there are many things I wish I could say to you right now but that was stolen from us. But I Loved You. More than I ever knew. Over the last 5 years that I've known you, you have impacted my life more than you'll ever know. I will keep your lessons with me wherever I go. The last time I saw you you were really concerned about my Bell's Palsy because you cared. Your passing has been really hard on us especially Eric, your baby boy. I know you're watching over us now. I wish you could send us a sign that you're okay. Don't worry about Pop. We got him. He's in good hands. We love you very much, grandma. May you rest easy with Jesus and Kimberly now. Xoxoxoxo until we meet again.
