"yesterday I lost my grandma. yesterday I lost part of me. you see she wasn't just my grandma. she was my listening ear. she was the one person I could tell anything to. she never judged me or made me feel small. she had such a beautiful heart and could always make me feel like I mattered, that I was important. she always made me feel loved. she wasn't just my grandma. she was my counselor. she held me when I cried. she gave me advice when I needed it. she rejoiced with me when I succeeded. she wasnt just my grandma. she was my pen pal. for as long as I can remember we would write each other back and forth. I will forever miss receiving her letters in the mail. she wasn't just my grandma. she was my best friend. I will forever treasure the memory of crawling into bed with her (which I have done since I was a little child up until just a few short weeks ago.) we would lay there and talk for hours. I always felt like I could lay there forever and listen to her talk about her most favorite memories, lessons she learned in life, and all about Jesus. she wasnt just my grandma. she was my role model. I looked up to her. I learned so much from her. my goals in life are to be as selfless, kind hearted, strong, forgiving, and as full of the Holy Spirit as she was. she wasnt just my grandma. she was my prayer warrior. as I sit here reading her old letters I realize how lost I will be without having her here to hug and to confide in. I can no longer write her a long letter and bare my soul to her and ask her for her prayers. I wish I could rewind time and re-live all my most precious moments with her just one more time. I thank God for giving her to me. I will forever treasure every moment I had with her. thank you from the bottom of my heart grandma for all you taught me, all the time you shared with me, and all the love you gave me. I love you with all my heart grandma. please hug Jesus and grandpa for me. I will miss you everyday for the rest of my life. "
