The one thing that will always be with me until the day I see her again, is the fact that she knew all about my past and not once did she ever pass judgment on me, nor did she look down upon me. There are many people that should take her silent teachings and practice them. I love that woman like I love my own grandmother. I bet your in heaven having a good old time with all those you lost throughout your life. I love you grandma, I'll see you soon enough
