Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts.

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us everyday....unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

We love you grandma and will always remember your love, humor, and kindness.
