Well grandma as I sit her thinking about again I start to cry. Its been three years since I've seen your smiling face. I still keep your id in my wallet. I love you so much and I hope you there isn't a day goes by where I don't wish that you were home. I still cant get through the fact of how fast things went. I just wish i could have taken the time to cherish it. I still hate myself each and everyday for all the time I made you cry and called you those bs names. I realize now that if not for you I would be the same I just hope you I cant wait to see you again. I know that watch me and I know you want me yo be ok but everytime I see your picture all I want is to hug you one more time all I want is one more time. I love you so much.
I miss you grandma love u so much

HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY MAMAW. Im going to try to visit your grave. I still cherish every moment I had with you. I look back at all the time I was mean or bad and I hate myself.

Well grandma im sitting here right now bawling my eyes out. Im listening to High on the mountain by vince gill. I don't know why im listening to it. I know its going to make me cry. I got my first car. I wish u were sitting beside me right now. I think everyday what it would be like if you were still around. Its funny how at Christmas everyone sat around saying it still isn't as good as grandmas and you know what it never will be. Im doing better in school. I want to make you proud. When u did my life did a 180 it caught me so off guard. I wish I could be with u right now. It kills me knowing that I sleep where you slept that your not here anymore to rub my legs when they hurt or to scratch my back. I look back at hate myself for every bad thing I sad to you. Every time I made you cry. all the times I let you down. I hate it. I would give anything to have you back. Grandpa and I were just sitting up and the garage tonight talking about u. David still says he is your boyfriend. I just wish you were here. I love you so much grandma. I cant even put it in words. You always had a way of helping with these situations. You always talked about seeing me graduate. You never even got to see me in high school. You never got to see me get my license. I still miss those phone calls from telemarketers. I miss all the little things. But the one thing that I miss the most is you I love you grandma
