She is my granddaughter, 'Nika'. I started that nickname as she seemed so tiny when 1st born. Nika was a special person. She tried hard to be the perfect daughter, wife & mother. I loved her so much, still do & always will.
In God's new kingdom we will see you Nika. I've written this 3 times trying to make sense of this happening. You are in Jehovah's memory & as he promised you will be back; see you sweetie.
Love you, Grandma Louana & Grandpa Nick
