I knew this incredibly sweet lady through Walmart. She used to come to the service desk to give me a hug every time she came shopping. No matter how awful my day had been, seeing her always made it better. She was like my little, personal ray of sunshine. The world is definitely a darker place without her.
Please call me leslie 440-1670. I was told from the people at sunny vista. So sorry to hear this.
I am sorry it has taken me so long to write this, but I honestly thought I'd already told you everything I wanted you to know, but it seems I missed a few things. I cried when Linda let me know you had passed. It was devastating, even though I know it was the escape you craved and deserved. I know I told you that wanted it for you, as well, but I was secretly thankful every time I went to visit you and you were still there. Some days I still find myself headed over to your new place, excited to complain to you about my day. When I get news or gossip, you are still on my list of people I want to tell, as well. I enjoyed reading your obituary and know that it was written with love, as you would have appreciated. It helped me take one more step towards accepting my loss and Heaven's gain. I want to add to it though. I guess I just want to place my favorite pieces of you on paper, so that maybe they will last forever. First off, I miss your stubborn streak, the one as big as a Nebraska cornfield, even though I always hated arguing with it. I also miss arranging your beloved turtle collection, to your exact specifications. I wish I could see your contagious smile once more, and pretend to despise the hug you diligently gave me every afternoon, even when it hurt you to. Surprisingly, I am sad that I will never get chaperoned by you in the van again. I promise I'd let you pick the thrift store if we could just drop in, one last time. I miss being able to casually call you up, just to see what was up. I am proud to call you my adopted-grandmother, and I am even more thrilled that you accepted me as your own. I guess I just miss everything about you and wish we had on more day, because surely I wouldn't want to cry right now if I knew that was possible. I am so grateful that God gave you “extra” time, because in your absence I am realizing just how much I needed you, far more than you could ever claim you needed me. I especially miss your tenacity to survive, and am sorry it wasn't enough this time. I want to end by saying you are truly missed, you were the best first boss ever, I expect you to be my guardian angel and I love you.
God Bless You,
