    Rest in peace grandma, even though we didnt see eye to eye, you were still one of the smartest, curious and outgoing personalities that i have ever had in my life. Being around you during our short time together opened my mind to several ways of thinking that i otherwise, would never had been exposed to.The world will miss you and so will i.💖
