Grandma,

It is so hard knowing that you will never post to my blog again or that I'll never see an email from you again. Knowing that you won't be at my wedding, you'll never be able to meet Chris or Brandie or see our beautiful house. I'm going to miss playing Balderdash with you, singing around the campfire, the many special times we spent together sitting on the porch talking. You meant so much to me, Grandma, and I am so sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. You have taught me so much about how to be a woman and how to be a wife. Thank you for showing me how to love and appreciate a man, how to truly admire him. Thank you for all the things you did for Kady and I; all the sewing projects, decorating the bassinette, encouraging me no matter how sick or discouraged I got. You taught me so much, Grandma, and my life would not be what it is today if you hadn't been such an important part of my life. I love you, Grandma, and look forward to seeing you again one day when we can all be together with Kady and Grandpa Leslie and Laura. What a reunion it will be! Until then, Grandma, I will be loving you and missing you with all my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you gave me.

loving you,

Laura

there are no words that can express the love we all felt for Grandma. There is a little part of her in each of us. Her legacy of family, love and faith will live on thru generations.

We gave her all your love, hugs,kisses, and thanks. Her beautiful spirit is now free to be with us all the time, and I KNOW she will be. I can feel her love and joy within me and around me. She loved and enjoyed her family and I am happy for her that she can finally be with us all just like she always wanted to be. She had 4 days with us after her hospitalization and for that I will always be grateful.

Words never seem adequate at times like this... but I'm sorry for your loss.
