Grandma

Grandma,
 You were everything I could ever wish to be. Your heart of gold so loving and kind. You forgave more than anyone ever should, and you were hurt more than anyone ever could. You stayed strong surgery after surgery and came out still laughing and smiling. You had so much love to give that you accepted all of our friends as your own grand kids. You took care of anyone who called upon you, and would give the shirt off your back if they asked you to. You cussed like a sailor but God forbid someone cross your path to mess with one of your own. You have always been such a strong and independent woman. I miss everything about you. From your broken toes to your beautiful long hair. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if you weren't my Grandma. I owe every second of my life to making sure you'd be proud of the grand daughter you raised. And i know you are in heaven smiling down on me and that youd still be here if love was enough to keep you alive. Thank you Grandma for all you ever did for everyone whom ever had the pleasure of knowing you ❤ i love and miss you Bobbie Joyce Jennings.
