    Dear Grandma, You were one of a kind. To be honest I don’t really know how to deal with this. Most people have “old” Grandparents that pass away from complications as they get older. Most people are on ceremony with their Grandparents as they grow up. You weren’t old and we were different. You were my Grandma, but more importantly we were good friends. I could always be myself with you, we never held anything back. I was devastated when a very hard life took it’s toll on you these past few years. I missed they way things were. Now losing you feels like loosing part of myself. There will always be a huge part of my heart that belongs to you. I miss you Grandma. Love you sooooo much. ~Scottie

    I was so sorry to hear that my long-time friend and your mother & grandmother had died. Joyce and I shared many hopes, dreams, laughs and tears during our years together. She loved all of you more than anything in this life. Her wonderful sense of humor and ability to create stories at the drop of a hat were most precious to me. I will miss her as will you but I believe God has her in the palm of His hand and I will see her on that white puffy cloud she loved, with her dog Molly. Love to you all. Alice PS Kim, I do not have your address or phone number b ut if you need someone to talk to call me.
