  2. Grandma you were the absolute BEST. I have always admired you. Looked up to you and wanted to be the strong woman that you have always been. I have cherished every second of my life that you and I have shared. I am extra grateful for the times you and I shared alone. Our chats, our laughter, our tears. I wanted so much to see you get well. Thank you for still watching over me even though when I lost my mama,(your daughter) thru your heartache and pain you still took the time to check on me and my sisters. You are there when my daddy past. Grandma at 88 years old, you still did all you could to show your loved ones how much you loved them. No matter how much you struggled. I love you Grandma. You have and will always be special to me. I hold your memories in a very safe place inside my heart. I know you are celebrating in a mighty big way since you have met up with all your loved ones. What a celebration! I am sad and will be for a while. But I know you are definitely in a much better and safer place. R.i.p. Grandma. Love your oldest grandchild, Billie Jo
