    I will miss you Grandma. To this day, I will not eat an apple without it being peeled first because of you! I love you.

    I love you Grandma. I can remember when you would take me for a milkshake when I spent the night, you made me feel special. And when I sat between you and Grandpa the left check was always for Grandpa to kiss and the right cheek was meant for your kiss. I can still feel the kisses. I will miss you!
