Alive in my heart forever, what a life you lived with such hardship and pain, but never a foul or negative word, never any bitterness from you, only love. When you smiled, everyone smiled with you. You gave me and others so much love. You were such a generous woman and I’ll forever be grateful and blessed by you. You put GRAND in front of mother, but was more of a “Grandmommy”. You have not walked since Dec. 17, 2017; but, I know you are now with Jesus, walking with no more pain or suffering, just surrounded by God’s beauty in His arms. You will always be alive in my heart forever!
