Today I have no words, so I will use somebody else's. I Love you, Grandma.

Dear Grandma,
I just can't picture a world without you in it. I am so blessed and thank God with my big heavy heart that I was by your side when you left it. I love you more than all the words in the world could ever write, so I send you this poem and all of my love.
Love,
Christie


Grandma

GRANDMA

I remember back to when I was about three,
when you gently placed me upon your bended knee.
You placed your arms around me,
And I could plainly see,
That all the love in your heart was there just for me.

When I was grown, I brought my children to Grandma's home.
My son, who was about three, you placed him gently upon your knee.
It brought back memories of you and me.

Now looking back, I think I have the key,
The hidden secret to your longevity.
It is your kindness, your spirit, your love.
Which is that great gift sent from above.

It's a love without measure or degree
It's a love that will last for eternity.
The things that I will remember,
Is your love for each- family member
