You’ve been my strength and I’ve gained so much wisdom from you.
You have blessed my life in so many ways.
Grandma (Sweet Mama),
We wish we could ‘ve captured every moment, instead we cherish every kiss and hold dearly to the memories that overwhelm our thought process. You were one of the best gifts that God ever gave. There are no words to express the woman you became. Sweet Mama, we love you and hope to one day see you again.
