    I miss you more than you could imagine. I would do anything to just hear your voice or hug you one more time. This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. You showed me how to be a lady, a mom. You showed me how to love and I will do everything to raise my kids the way you and paw paw raised Matthew and I. I want them to know you, and I'm so deeply sorry you never got to meet them before you passed. I promise your memory will never pass. Matthew and I are talking again like you wanted and truly I have you to thank for that, so thank you for helping me get my brother back. Paw paw is doing okay but still misses you like crazy as we all do. I got to go see him a few weeks after you passed, though I did plan that trip before you passed but kept it a secret because I wanted to surprise you. Mine, Paw paws, and matthew's relationship is stronger now than ever before, I really wish you were here to see it. I hope I can make you proud. I know one day i'm going to see you again but until then i'm going to live everyday in your image. Thank you for always being there for us all, for being my second mom and best grandma anyone could ever ask for. Enjoy this rest that you deserve. Watch over us all and know we miss and love you so so much maw maw. <3
