Oh my sweet sweet grandma. You lived with such ferocity that I will carry it with me always. You never passed judgement no matter the circumstances. I know that you and grandpa are smiling down on all of us. True love reunited. I will always remember your kind loving voice and how sweetly you always said my name. I will miss you fiercely but will be reminded of you every time I smell the ocean, alfalfa and oranges. When I watch michael flatley, I will see your sweet sweet smile. I love you more than you know but know that you are at peace and with your true love. Until I see you again with all my heart I love you. 💜💜💜

Oh my sweet grams. Your love and spirit lives and carries on within each and everyone of us. You were a mother, grandma and great grandma who loved us fiercely without judgment, just pure love and joy for the family that you created. I promise to love and honor you by showing that same unconditional love. I’ll never forget your sweet smile and the joyous memories you created for us. I’ll be reminded of you by the simplest things such as the smell of cucumbers and apricots, alfalfa fields, chips and salsa...when I watch The Goonies, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Robin Hood, Princess Bride, and Seinfeld. Boxed wine and hotdog roasts. Dragonflies, the beach, and relaxing in the sweet summer breeze. I will never forget. All I picture now is grandpa smiling from ear to ear to greet his beautiful wife home. I know you’re here with me...until we see each other again ❤️❤️
