My Mom always said life would have been different if you didn't pass away, I believe that to be true with all my heart. One thing that gave me comfort when my mom passed was that I knew you would be right there waiting for her and how happy she would be to be with you again. She always told us stories about you stories I tell my children today. I know your looking down on all of us and helping us through life the best you can I wish things were different but sometimes you have to accept the things you can not change. Take care of my Mom until the day comes that we are all reunited .
Love you
your grand daughter
