My Grandma was one of a kind . The love and compassion she always showed to us was simply the best . I can honestly say I don't think I have ever seen her angry or mad . Her laugh was the best laugh My heart aches because I lost my favorite grandma . But then my heart is also happy to know she is reunited with my grandpa her son and parents . I will for ever Love you Gram .
