My Dear Grandmother,

I miss you more than these words could ever say. You were my source of strength and love when I was growing up. You passed on when I was 7 but your every word has stuck in my heart and mind. I will always remember you and the important role you played in my life. I thank you for watching over me and keeping me safe from harm. I thank you for showing me the right way and guiding my feet down the right path. I thank you for giving me my name because each day I am reminded that I am a part of you and you a part of me.

I love you Grandma.
