Grandma! Your birthday is tomorrow! Wow time is going by quick. I seen a tape of you when you were 50. I still got that video of you dancing at Grandma Marsha birthday party with Auntie Fran too. I still can't believe you're gone. I remember staying with you at the hospital in Elkhart and not going to school because everyone had to work so I stayed and made sure you were good, but as soon as work was over they were right at the hospital with you too. You took care of me every time I was sick with just a little cold, so I had to be there for you, You were always looking out for me, had my back, and made sure I was good. I didn't care about missing school, I just wanted you to get better, now you are better because you're finally at peace. You never complained, just took it day by day. Remember them Nurses at Elkhart had the nerve to give you them nasty tacos and you made me eat them because you didn't want to hurt their feelings by sending it back. So nice. Omg I miss you so much. I remember seeing you you're last days at Memorial and the night you passed. I knew you were going to pass before the Doctor even said it, you just looked ready to go. I didn't expect you to pass in the hospital though. I know Victor and Grandma Marsha were getting your bed and things ready at her house, so you could pass there comfortably. You fought all you could fight. God said that it was time. You were surrounded by family during your hardest times at every doctor appointment, every hospital visit, and your last days. My mom was in the same hospital at the same time too and on your last days. She was on the child birth unit and she said she knew you were gone because of something, I think her light flicked on and off or something like that and that was your way of telling her that you were checking out. Mama said if her child would have made it she would have named it Clara. I remember all that like it was yesterday, going back and forth on the elevator to see you, then my mom. I know my mom wish she could have seen you the night you passed, but she had to stay in her hospital room. It was a crazy time. I remember Sarieta broke down, saying she doesn't like seeing you like that. No one did Grandma, but you were a fighter to the very end and I just wish I could get one more hug, one more call. Your energy was the best. Sometimes I feel guilty because of the little stuff I did when I was younger like jumping on the couch and you telling me to stop and I wouldn't. Why was I so hard headed? I'm sorry if I ever made you mad, or did anything you didn't like or agree with. I remember seeing you the day before your funeral at Alford's, that's when it really hit me that it was real and that you were gone physically. Everyone was walking in, Grandma Marsha, Vj, Robbie, Sandy, Gloria, Fran, and others to make sure everything was right for the funeral. The day of your funeral was the day before my birthday, I know you're in a better place, but my birthday will never be the same again. We all miss you down here on earth, but I know you're up there with your sisters, brother, granddaughter, and many more giving them the great joy, energy, and spirit you gave us all. I could go on and on forever. Have fun up there in Heaven and get well rested up so we can party all day when I get there. Love you Grandma. RIP! Please stay watching over me and protecting me, I will always love you and I will never ever ever ever ever forget you, my Angel. We WILL see each other again, that's my PROMISE to YOU and I'm KEEPING it until the day we meet AGAIN. LOVE YOU! RIP.
