All throughout my lifetime, I've always had my Grandma to cheer me on, to lift my spirits, and to remind me that I was always loved. When I needed anything; whether it was a shoulder to cry on, a good laugh, or just some simple attention - she was always willing with open arms. It's hard for me to think about the fact that now there's an empty spot in my life. The love I've become so accustomed to having any time I needed it isn't there for me to have. I'm not an emotional person and I tend to keep my personal feelings to myself - but I feel as if she deserves for me to say how grateful I really am for everything she did for me. My Grandma loved everyone. Especially her family. Anything important that ever happened in my life - she was there. I can't think of a single person who told me they were proud of me more than she did. I remember her telling me continuously that her grandchildren were her pride and joy, and I'll always believe that. I'm heartbroken now, but I know that the more positive memories I collect of her; the closer that hole in my heart will come to closing. I love you, Grandma. We had a bond that I didn't share with anyone else, and I'll miss you forever. Do me a favor and keep watch over Seth and I? You were an angel in life, and I couldn't ask for a better one to keep me safe now. Please remember how much I love you, how much we all loved you, and that you'll have a special place in my heart always.
