Hi grandma its almost your birthday. April 10th isa very hard day for me since thats your birthday. When it gets close to your birthday I start getting sad and depressed. I know you wouldn't want me to cry and be sad. But it's so hard I would give anything to have just one more day with you. But its just like the song says if i had one more day it would just leave me wishn for one more day

Everything my grandma did
was something special made with love.
She took time to add the extra touch
that said, "I love you very much."
She fixed hurts with a kiss and smile
and told good stories grandma-style.
It was warm and cozy on her lap
for secret telling or a nap.
And when I say my prayers at night
I ask God to bless and hold her tight.
Cause when it comes to giving hugs

When I look at the stars I don’t see a night sky I see your beautiful eyes winking back at me
I see your face in the clouds hear your voice in the wind and feel your touch in the warmth
I miss the way you smiled I miss your smellyour warm hugs No one or anything can or ever will compare to you
You may think you were just my grandma but you were so much more than that you were my best frien

Forever in my heart & memory grandma lives on. I never said good-bye and never will because one day we will meet again. She told me it's not good-bye it's so long! She was the smartest women I've ever known. I'll NEVER let go. Grandma this is for you I Love You !
