Saying Goodbye....



How do I say goodbye to a woman that meant the world to me?
From a little girl holding on to the hemline of her skirt until an adult wishing I could still sit on her lap.
Granny you loved me unconditionally, never giving up hope when everyone else did.
I remember your words...
"As long as I'm praying for you, then God is on your side Erika and you don't need anybody else to believe in you more then him."
Thank you for  all the good times and sweet memories that will forever live with me.
The slippin slide and the "freckle game", the tea parties and dress up, vacation bible school.
Yes, Granny.. I will miss you more then anything but I know that you are happy now in Heaven.
But I won't say goodbye... or so long...
But until we meet again, until I see you again and you let me play with your angel wings and greet me with that smile and say....
 "I'm so glad to see you again my sweet pea"

I Love You Forever Granny

  2. Praying for you. Your grandma sounds like a wonderful woman, I'm sure she will be missed by many, but you are right, it's not goodbye, just "until we meet again".

  3. I was fortunate enough to have an amazing grandma as well. I wish we never had to say goodbye go such wonderful women but those memories are never far away.

  4. I personally got to know your Grandma. I remember the nights that I stayed over at her house when you visited Goldsboro. Now your Granny is your personal guardian angel. Take care!!!
