Love You Forever!!

One month ago today on February 2nd, my sweet loving grandma passed away. I miss her more than words can say, but knowing that she was reunited with her sweetheart makes it bittersweet. I have so so many wonderful memories with her. She was so good to me as a child and taught me so many things. I spent almost every summer with my grandparents growing up and will cherish those memories forever. Grandma was the perfect example of a wife and mother and I hope to follow in her footsteps. Love you Grams. XOXO
