    OG, I hope you’re dancing in the sky
    I hope you’re singing in the Angels choir
    I hope the Angels know what they have

    Since you arrived. Rest now Rose, Jesus got you!

    We started out rocky but ended strong. I only wish i could have had one last day, just to tell you how much you meant to me & how blessed i am to have known you. I’ll miss our morning coffee together, but most of all i’ll miss the sound of your voice, when you call to complain about me not keeping in touch enough. You didn’t have to accept me or love me but you did. And i’m a better person for have knowing you. I love & miss you Granny.
