    I really miss you, grandma. I wish you were still here but I know you’re in a better place. Say hi to dad and grandpa for me and tell them I love them.

    Mom- today you and dad would have been celebrating 53 years of marriage, probably in Vegas.
    I never knew how much I would miss you, but it’s almost daily. I love you and can’t wait until we meet up again.
