  4. Angie Gardner says:

    I will miss your smile and kisses, and I will miss your laughter too.
    I will miss your trust in others, no matter what they did to you.
    I will miss the way you light up, when your grand-babies walk in the room.
    And the way you always thought of others, and always stopped to watch flowers bloom.
    You taught me hate was wrong, and forgiveness is always there.
    And how making friends was easy, when you treat them kind and fair.
    You taught me not to quick judge people, or gossip in any word.
    That even though I may not like being wrong, there is always another side to be heard.
    And that there is no perfect to be found., no matter what they say.
    Also To respect my Mom and Dad, Because I would be them and understand someday.
    But above all that, you taught me, a lesson all should know.
    That the love from a Grandma no matter what, will never cease to grow!

    Rest In Peace Gram
    I love you always and miss you forever.
