My grandma was always so beautiful and very intelligent. She taught me so much growing up..I loved spending time with her..we would make a homemade cake or cookies and then we would get a big glass of milk take it upstairs and watch a movie any time I would spend the night....I usually fell asleep before the movie ended.. in the morning she would quietly wake me up for mass...she always would say my name and rub my back telling me it was time to get up...we would go on picnics just the two of us and afterwards she would push me on the swings at the park.. we always had a special relationship..she will be missed..I will be eager to see her again in the kingdom of Heaven along with my grandfa...ther, my mom, my other grandmother (my grandfather's 1st wife) my Aunt Val, my pop pop and Nan (great grandmother) ...
Out of everyone I will miss you the most...thank you for always being there for me guilding me and believing in me when I didn't have faith in myself...
I love you and always will..YOU ARE MISSED!!!
