Dear Grandma…. I miss you so much I canâ€™t explain. I have so Many happy memories… going to your apartment seeing all your beautiful lipsticks and earrings and makeup to play in. I remember you always clipping the comic strips because they were your favorite. You made the best soft scrambled eggs ever… you were an amazing cook, friend, listener… never raised your voice or said a Harsh word to me. You introduced me to God at a very young age and I remember going to the Kingdom Hall with you. Whenever I or someone would leave you would always say please donâ€™t go stay a little longer…. now I wish I could say those words to you. I love you and you were the best grandma anyone could ever ask for. I miss you so much I refuse to believe youâ€™re gone. God bless you and may he allow you peace. I love you Delores Naomi Gordon and I will cherish your beautiful memory every day.
I really miss my Nanny. We shared many great memories!
