May 5th will be one year ago that we lost so quickly my wonderful Step MOM Mavis. I have always been very lucky in the Step Parent department as I have always loved mine and have had many. But Mavis was very extra SPECIAL. She loved me like a daughter.....loved my children as a Grandparent should and added much spunk to my dads life. We liked lots of the same things.....shopping being one. She was responsible for introducing me to Ross's many years ago. It became our "have to do" on my trips to visit....and always at least one "all day" shopping trip. She was so supportive of me when I was so sick. Her and dad coming to stay with me so I could come home sooner than later....she worked so hard to keep up my house and keep us all fed. I sure miss her smile and think of her often. So very glad you were brought into our lives and thank you for making a difference.

We loved you then and now....

Dear Grandma,

I remember how you were always smiling.
I remember when you used to read to me.
I remember when we used to cook breakfast together.
I remember how you were always excited to see me.

You were always my role model in everything I did.
You were always supportive of me.
You were always pushing me to follow my dreams.
You were exactly what I strived so hard to be.

I will never forget your hugs and kisses.
I will never forget how you held my hands when they were cold.
I will never forget your mischievous grins and winks.
I will never forget you saying how proud of me you were.

Not a day will go by that I don't think of you.
I pray that you are in a good place now.
I wished a thousand times that I could take your pain away.
But I believe that God has special plans for you.

I miss you everyday knowing I won't see your smiling face.
That I can't call you when I need you the most.
But I find comfort in knowing ill see you again one day.

I love you always and forever.
Sincerely, your granddaughter.

My Dear Mavis:
The times that we have had, since I Met you in 1994 and now and forever. You have a way of making me feel that my life is full and complete. You've given me a Love I never expected; a love alive and vibrant: yet softly tender and sweet. And because I forget to say it enough, taking for Granted that you know it, let this little love note to you always serve to show how happy I am that you're my wife and I will love you so for ever
