Thank you for the gift of love and time we shared. Those cherished memories of our moments together will be forever imprinted in my heart and mind. A beautiful saying that gives me comfort: "Those we love don't go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear." -Unknown Author May you find comfort in the arms of our loved ones greeting you at Heaven's gate. I will miss you dearly grammy.
