Dear Grandma......

I hardly knew you. At least that is how I feel right now. I can't believe you are gone. I thought you would live to be 100 years old, I really did. I can't help but be jealous right now. I miss Grandpa and are with them now and it must be the happiest you have ever been. Even though we haven't been home much the last three years you have been in my heart everyday. You always have been. My greatest memories are with you. Driving to Disneyland when I was just five years old. Just you, me, Grandpa and Kris. I remember it like it was yesterday. Watching Dallas and Falcon Crest on Friday nights. I'm pretty sure I shouldn't have been watching those shows, but I was with you so it was OK. Visiting you at the bank and going upstairs for grilled cheese sandwiches at Ben's. Journey bags. Mowing your lawn each week and having you pay me way more than I should have been getting at 12 years old. You always made sure I was taken care of Grandma. Your heart was unmatched. Your love was unwavering. Every time we came into town I would always tell Britt that I thought it may be the last time we see you.....never thinking that day would ever come. Now here it is.........and I'm not quite sure what to do. Grandpa has probably been extra grumpy without you. Hopefully, right now, he has a smile on his face. I'm sure that Kris is going crazy, her "lady" is back. You had a long and wonderful life. I had the greatest Grandma that I could have ever asked for. I will miss your wet kisses, I wish I could have made it home for just one more.

The service for your grandmother was beautiful and I thought you did an excellent job honoring her. I will miss seeing her at all of the family functions...You were very lucky to have her in your life...I will always remember her as Kate's wheelchair buddy!
