My dearest grandmother… I miss you so much. It’s just not the same without you here by our sides in this crazy thing called life. Thank you for always instilling your core values in your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I’m hoping to follow in your footsteps in the nursing career and I promise to always make you proud. You weren’t just my grandmother but you were my best friend too. You definitely left us way too soon. Until we meet again meme, I love you ❤️❤️❤️
