Heaven


My grandmother went to Heaven today to see the Lord. She was a great woman. She was always the "hip" grandma. Always in tune with what was popular and you didn't hate getting whatever clothes you got from her for Christmas, you looked forward to it! She is my dad's stepmom, but has been in our family WAY before my time. Now, Lung Cancer has taken two of my grandmothers and one other person that I cared about (my friend, Tara's, mom). At least my grandmother was 86 and had literaly seen the world. I don't know if there is one country that she hasn't been too, well maybe not anywhere in Africa. Anyway, here's to my Grandma Helen. She will be greatly missed.

Sorry to hear about your grandmother. Sorry I can't be there with you. If you need anything, I'm just a phone call away.

Sorry I am so late to this, but I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will really miss her, but it is good you have such great memories to hang on to.
