Granny... Where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday we were standing at the kitchen counter making tea or biscuits. Looking out the window to spot red birds sitting in the trees; in which, you taught me how to whistle to them. Or looking for four leaf clovers in the front yard, because you could always spot them so quickly. I still remember our times at the Farmer's Market picking out vegetables, fruits, and honey. The times when me, you, and nana would sit and shuck the corn, break the beans, cut the squash, and peel the tomatoes. Or the times when you would come down to the house and play basketball with me. Our days driving on the open back roads, just seeing where the road would take us. The days spent picking strawberries from the field or planting our garden. All the time spent putting together puzzles at the beauty shop, remember the edges first then the inside. Those memories seem like they were just yesterday when in reality they were years ago. Time sure does fly by, but I will cherish those memories forever! You were someone who I looked up to, who I valued very much. I will never forget all of the support and kind words you said to me. You were always there when I needed you and I knew that I could always count on you. I will make you proud, I promise. I love you so much! You will be missed dearly, it isn't going to be the same without you here. I know you are in a better place, and reunited with other loved ones. Tell Grandaddy that I said, "Hello and I can't wait to meet him one day", tell E.J. "I miss you and our fishing talks", take care of Nana's little boy and give Thumper a hug for me. I know things are hard without you here, but I just keep telling myself everything happens for a reason. As the preacher said "All life is precious", and I believe that you were as precious as life. Times had been rough and I understand that you were tired. I still wish you had stayed with us; instead of leaving us, leaving me, like you did. But I know things are better now and that you are being well taken care of (or at least you better be). As the preacher stated: "It's not goodbye, it's I'll see you later". And Granny, I will indeed see you later! So save some vegetables and tea for me. And don't worry I will take care of Nana and Momma, I promise. I miss you so much already, but I know and feel that you are still here with me... in my heart. I love you and I WILL see you later...
