We miss you sooo missed grandma ! I miss being at your house having sleepovers and dinners, playing cards with you even though you always seemed to whoop my butt lol, eating your delicious meals and your amazing baking, laughing and reminiscing about all the amazing heartfelt moments we shared, having coffee with you at the coffee shop, deciding who’s house I should eat at and always choosing yours…( then I could wiggle my way into having a sleepover), I miss every single moment I spent with you and will hold those memories so dear in my heart.
