    Rest in Peace Nana. My best friend. My rock. You mean the world to me and I miss you more than anything. I would DO anything just to have you back and to hear your voice again or hug you one last time. This is the hardest thing I have EVER been through and I know the whole family is suffering to. She was the heart of the family. She was a blessing to everyone. Such a sweet beautiful soul. I could not have asked for a better grandma. You were an inspiration, still are. So strong so caring. She would do what she could to make sure we were all taken care of and she never asked for anything in return. I hope you can look down on all of us and steer us toward the right direction. I’m always gonna be here talking to you. Hoping you hear me. I love you with all my heart. You can rest now sweet angel.
