Not sure what to say?

I wish I could hold your hand one more time to tell you how much I live you mama!

Good morning my dearest grandma! Today is Olivia's 7th birthday. She is so excited she gets to eat on the stage with the principal and get ice cream. I know you can see her from heaven. Every day as she grows she reminds me more and more of you. Her mannerisms the things she says and the fact she hates to wear jeans. She has such a sweet kind of soul. And love to include everybody. She never leaves any classmates out. I am so proud of her. And I'm so grateful you had the chance to enjoy her...

I can't begin to tell you how Much I miss and love you my sweet mommy! love and miss you more than ever. your favorite daughter

My dear granny,
I miss you so much. Today makes five years I have spent without you. There are so many things you missed. I so wish you could be here right now. I know you are watching over us and it gives me much comfort. I know you were a God loving woman and I'm quite sure you hold a high place up there in heaven. As time goes on the pain from the loss of you does not go away. I am so glad and grateful I had you in my life. I love you with all my heart grandma! Although this was a sad...

My dearest Grandmother,
I cannot believe how the time is just flying by! There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you so much my heart aches. Your great-granddaughter Olivia is getting so big! She is so beautiful and a total Mini-Me. And I swear you are somewhere in her little soul guiding her. Literally everything she does reminds me of you. The way she sits with her legs crossed and how she poses for pictures like a little model. And her love of cheesy scary...

Dear granny,
Today would've been your 84th birthday. I wish you were here so I could give you the biggest hug and kiss and birthday wish. We head Olivia's birthday party on Saturday. I wish you could've been there. I love you and miss you so much more with every passing day. There's any emptiness inside of me that will never go away. It's because your love for me was so great that nothing can take your place. Happy birthday granny!
With all my love,

I have no one to call this year. So I thought I'd send you this message. I love you and miss more with each passing day.

My dearest Granny,
I can't begin to tell you how much I miss you around this time. You loved Christmas so much and spent so much time decorating and making it beautiful for all of us. I bought a fresh tree today with mom to decorate with Olivia. It's a Frasier fir and smells beautiful. I haven't decorated it yet as I remember you always told me to let it sit for 24 hours to let the branches settle. Things are very complicated right now as I'm sure you know. I'm looking for a new job but...

My dearest granny,
I'm staying at your house tonight for the last time. Bossy was shipped to New York today. I felt so bad for uncle bill. He cried for a while but he seems to be doing OK. This is uncle bill's last night in your house. I didn't want him to be all alone without Bossy or you. I still am trying to deal with your passing. Mom is a wreck, I can't sleep anymore. I lay awake thinking of all the wonderful times we've had together and how I thought we'd have so many more...
