Grandma, I was thinking of you today and a smile tickled my face... Remembering all the things you taught me like, always to say Grace. I remember sitting in your lap while you read the Bible out loud, to hear me sing a gospel song made you so proud.... I thought of those Saturday mornings I watched them fix your hair, I remember crossing the street and hearing "GIRL YOU BETTER STOP RIGHT THERE!!!" I remember the goodness you instilled in me tho' sometimes it doesn't show... You played a very special part in my life and i thought that you should know... My childhood is filled with memories of you that you couldn't buy with all the gold in the world and even tho' I am all grown up at heart i will always be GRANDMA'S LIL' GIRL!!!!!
