I am so sorry for your loss. I love you guys and remember i am here if you need to talk or anything.
I am sorry for your loss. She was both a loving and honest woman. She has helped my husband and I over and over not to mention what she has done for our kids. Before I married Wes, I had no living grandparents until the day she called me her granddaughter. That was the moment I became a part of her family. I will miss her dearly. Rest in peace grandma.
I am very hearbroken for my best friend, Karen. We joke around and say that we are sisters, except I truly feel as if we are. Her Mother was strong but her strength could no longer keep her here on earth. It was time for her to be with God and continue her strength from up above. She will be watching over her family from a place where there is no suffering. RIP Darlene
