I just want to start by saying, thank you to everyone who is here for coming to support our family, and showing gramma how much we love her and how much she impacted each and every one of us. I know that I will always love her. I will never go a day without thinking of you gram, and I think I speak for all of us here when I say that. We love you, so much and you will forever live in our hearts and minds. I never saw this day coming when I was to say goodbye, I thought you would be here forever, I believed it. When I saw you a week ago, sitting in the emergency room laughing and smiling, telling me stories, I never knew a week later I would be giving you one final kiss on the cheek, one final goodbye. I thought it was just a small thing, and you would be home in your corner in no time. You were really never one to show how much you loved everyone, but we knew you did and we know you always will. I hope you hear us, as we say we love you and goodbye. I know you will. This feels like its just one big nightmare, and I’m going to wake up and everything will be back to normal, you will be sitting in your corner, just smoking your cigarettes sharing your stories. I will never forget the day me, DeAnna and Coda were sitting there with you, and you told us to go be prostitutes so we could be rich, then you told us to start a band and Name it the 3D’s, to share are talent that we don’t have. We will forever be your 3D’s. Your jokes will never be forgotten. You always had a smile on your face, your little smirk. I never saw you cry, you were always smiling. You’re the strongest women I know, besides mom and right now you would be so proud of her. She is staying strong for you. We all are trying our best. I just wish you were here with us, telling us your stories. I would give anything to hear your laugh and see your smile right now, but its okay because you live through us now in memories and I know you will always be watching over every single one of us. From this day forward I vow to always make you proud, everything I do will be to make you proud. I promise, one day I will be the best doctor, and I will find a cure for cancer, so no one has to go through the pain you went through. I remember the other day, when I walked in the room and you went “Hey! See that girl in the blue shirt, she’s going to be a CNA in july, and she’s going to be better then you!”; thank you so much for showing me how proud you were of me. It made me more determined than ever to make you proud. When I take my test, I will be thinking of you and I will pass it with flying colors for you, gram. Again, you are so strong, never once did I see you show that you were in pain, and we aren’t stupid we knew you were, but you stuck through it for five years for us and I thank you because those past five years you have seen us all grow so much. You were the one who raised joey into the man he is today. You got to be there for dakotah and Deanna while they finished high school and walked across the stage, you got to be there for our sweet sixteens, you got to see Frankie grow into a mature kiddo, even though he will forever be a terrorist, you also got to see travis grow like a million feet taller then everyone else; and you even got to see gavin come into the world. Though he doesn’t really know you because his a little baby, he will forever know you. As he grows, I am sure we will all be telling him stories of his crazy gramma. Thank you for sticking through it, and not just watching us grow, but for watching everyone grow and keeping everyone together a little longer. You were there for so many people, you raised so many of us and you weren’t obligated to do any of it. Oh and don’t worry, we will still play your numbers every single night for you, and one day we will win for you gram. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for every single thing you did. We love you and I love you so much. Ill see you soon gram, don’t party to hard without us and tell everyone we said hello, rest in paradise gorgeous; fly high with them angels.
