Gram there are no words to express the grief we are feeling. Anyone whoever met you and anyone you spoke to knew how special you are. Our only consolation is we know you are now with grandpa. He waited a very long time for you. I will miss your smile. I will miss the smell of your sauce cooking. I will miss your โ€œup for anythingโ€ attitude. My heart is breaking. ๐Ÿ’” Rest In Peace beautiful. Until we meet again. ๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿ˜˜
