Grandma,
As I sit here watching your home going celebration my heart is so heavy and full. Grandma you were more than just my granny, you were my only moma. The one of two people in my life that loved me unconditionally. I miss you so badly and I love you more than words can say. Until we see each other again. But, kiss and hug my Grandpa and my daddy"Bruh" for me. Let them know how much I miss and love them.

We share the sadness during the loss of my sister and our aunt, Paulina. At the same time, we celebrate and remember her life as a strong and enduring woman. She was always willing and ready to give kind words of comfort and encouragement, and words of wisdom and correction when needed. We hope to emulate her life and carry on her legacy. Sister, I love you. Auntie, we miss you.
