Rest easy Gram. I will see you in all of nature's beauty. I remember how happy you were when we went camping, visiting the ocean and redwoods. I remember when you would take me to the bmx track. You always told me:think positive. When I would stress about getting there on time, you blasted Neil Diamond on the tape deck, and pumped your fist while singing coming to american or sweet caroline. You rocked it! Love you always and miss you forever!

And Where ever I go, and the radio plays your song I'll know you'll be singing with me...I Love you Mom... God Bless you and may you feel all the Love around you forever & always

Love you gram! Ill never forget your karate moves, or how you made me giggle as a child (smelling my feet making me think I was stinky) and the laughs we shared as I got older. I am goofy because you were :) that part of you will live on within me. You loved selflessly ! I know God has spoke to His faithful servant, well done. I am proud to have a gram to live as Paul wrote in 1 cor. 11:1 as he shadowed Gods love 1 cor 13 ! Couldnt be more excited for you to take on your new form and live in the presence of the King of Kings! I will always talk to you and I know you hear me! Love you Grammy!!
