    It saddens my heart that my grandma has passed away, but at the same time, I’m very blessed to know that she is at peace with no more pain. She was truly GOD sent and a blessing.

    If flowers grow in heaven, Lord then pick a bunch for me then place them in my grandma’s arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her that I love her and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.
