I think of you everyday and all that you have ever done for me. I miss your smile, your laughter, your kisses and hugs, the sound of your voice. I look into the beautiful sky and know that you are looking down on us from above and that you are no longer suffering or in fear. We will all be alright until we can be with you again. I know I look forward to the day when we are together again. I love you Gram, always, your loving granddaugter, Leslie
