I love you so much grandma. I look back to when you and Grandpa lived with us as we were growing up, and they are memories I will absolutely treasure forever. You embodied everything a mother and grandmother should be, and I consider myself so lucky to have you in my life for my 27 years on earth. You, grandpa, and Uncle Dan are looking down on us all, and I hope I can even come close to the person you saw all of us to be. Until I see you again, goodbye.

To my mother, my best friend, and the person I’ve looked up to all my life, you were everything a mother should be and you were second to none. I will miss you so terribly but I know you are with Dan and Dad, happily reunited. Thank you for a lifetime of happy memories and for all you taught me about life. I love you Mom❤️
