She was my voice of reason when I didn’t want one
She gave me hope when I felt there was none
She was my source of strength when I felt weak
She was my book of wisdom in times of need
She gave me a love that will always stay with me.
She taught me how to be a good wife
She showed me what it was like to exhibit self-sacrifice
She gave my children a kind of love that only a great grandmother could give
She is, was, and always will be my son’s best friend.
She had knowledge that I could only dream of having
She had advice like no other regardless of whether or not I wanted
She had a way of making me think outside the box of which I lived.
I could go on and on and never come clost to
Describing how she touched the very depths of my soul
I will never forget the acceptance she showed me
The forgiveness she gave me when I wasn’t deserving
And although I wasn’t her flesh and blood
She took me under her wings and made me feel like I was
I am very thankful that God gave me that chance to know
The most amazing grandma that ever was.
She is, was, and always will be the guardian angel forever with me
Regardless of where my life may lead.
There’s one more thing I want to say before I am thru
And that is I will forever hold onto the warmth of her smile, the comfort of her selfless love,
And the memories she left before Jesus took her home.
She is, was, and always will be the most wonderful grandma God ever gave me.
