To my grandma

A woman of extreme strength, courage and love,

Who was beautiful, soft and now peaceful and free as a dove.

Someone on who our admiration was built around,

For her womanhood, wife, friend and grandmother since she was brought into this ground.

My Darling Grandma, we will forever hold in our hearts in which we have truly learned the most from,

Your strength as a wonderful mother to our mothers and fathers,

And which we hope to gain in raising your great grandsons and great granddaughters.

My darling grandma, we will always respect all you went through in your hardships and distinguished ways,

Your ability to hold yourself with such dignity and pride in all your days,

Your beauty shines in us all who were lucky to be part of your devoted family,

We will carry you in our eyes, minds, and hearts in which we have a remedy,

My Darling Grandma, that is to hold you close by all you have taught us to do,

And to remember the beautiful women we owe our lives to,

For giving us life to blessing us with her strong inner spirit of courage,

Her unconditional love and her sensual laughter,

For being such a person in who will always and have always

held deep in our hearts now and here after.

My Darling Grandma, You are taking a little part of us with you as you follow your angels who will guide you to your

precious place,

May you look down on us with pride on what you brought

into this world with your guidance in which you are now

truly our angel of grace.

My Darling Grandma, as you enter your new heavenly home,

may you rest in peace for which you truly deserve,

For you will be truly missed and remembered for your love and honor in which we will preserve.

We love you always and forever and may God be with you, Jackie West
