It was such a blessing having you as my grandmother. I got to spend 25 wonderful years with you. Raising me as your own, not letting me walk to school alone, swimming in your pool, drying dishes while you washed them, going for drives back old country roads, shopping trips to the dollar store. I will never forget any of these memories. I will never regret any time spent with you. I spent more time with you than I did with Mom & Dad. I am so lucky that you instilled all of your morals and values in me. I am beyond lucky to have someone that loved (and still loves) me as much as you did. I can't wait to see you again in heaven one day - until then tell Nan and Pappaw that I love them so much. I miss you so much and always will but I got to spend so much time with you and experience the fullness of your love for me so that will get me through until we see each other again. Keep watching over me, my mourning dove. I love you.
