Grandma, I am so sorry to hear of your passing. I know that you are flying high with the angels and are now at peace with no pain. I wish that I could take back our missed time together, but since I cannot I will continue to be thankful for the times we did have together. You were a very strong woman. I love you so very much and will see you again one day.
