There are no words to describe my thoughts and feelings today. I never knew what it was like to have a true grandmother until the day I met you and I want to thank you for that. Thank you for your love, acceptance, kindness, support, and generosity. You took the hand of Our Lord this morning and took flight to your new home. You are forever healed with a new body in Christ. No more pain or suffering. I love you Maw maw beyond words and will miss you so, but I know you are under Our Lord’s wing and he has got you from here. Until we meet again ♥️
