nan I will never forget everything you have done for me. We used to watch everyone loves raymond and the golden girls together. We have have chocolate chip cookies while watching those shows. Every saterday we went to needham. You would get your hair done while i walked around and looked at the stores. You would always give me 10 dollars to go to the candy store and let me get my favorite kind of candy. Every week I always looked forward to saterday. After you were done getting your hair done we would go to not your average joes. You would get the same sandwhich and I would always get a pizza. You told me one day I would turn into one because I ate soo much pizza growing up. It always made me laugh. You were the best grandmother anyone could ever have. I love you and miss you soo much

I love you, I'll miss you every day, and I'll never forget every memory you gave me:

All the breakfasts you and I shared when you would shake your head because I loaded my half of your grapefruit with sugar because it was gross; and the other half to your english muffin you shared with me always covered i
n apricot preserves.
How you would always buy the large box of tea, only because it came with the ceramic animal you always knew I wanted.
How you pretended you didn't know I was lying when I told you I broke my wrist by tripping on the porch, when I had twigs and leaves in my hair from the tree I fell out of.
Thank you for coming to every school play, every chorus concert, and every band concert, every basketball game, and now matter how much you tried to convince me band was cool, it never was.
Thank you for so many laughs as we spent hours watching "The Nanny" and letting me stay up late to do so.
The way you would always say "Oh, Cyndi" whenever I showed you my tattoos I got, because you always hated them and said, "I don't care how pretty you think it is Cyndi, its ugly and its there forever I hate them." It always made me chuckle.

Thank you for being the best grandmother any child could ask for, you lived with us, and helped raise me to be the person I am today. I can only hope you're looking down and you're proud of who I am, and know that I thank you for a lot of it.

I love you & I will never forget all of our memories we made, and I only hope I can learn to deal with it all.

With love and XXX (because "hugs are the best part")

I hope they have you in your golden chair you deserve, and you know you will always be in my heart. ?

I love you Nan. Thank you for all the memories I will cherish and share for the rest of my life. You helped raise me to be the person I have grown to be and I am sorry you won't be here to see me continue to grow. I love you and can't ever thank you enough for all that you have done but hope you get to watch from above as I continue to make you proud.
