Rest in Peace mom-mom. You were so kind to me and my family. I will hold the memories of you dear to my heart. When we were little, I remember how you would come out to visit us during the holidays, taking me and my sister to Toys R Us to buy us a toy, or the mall to buy us clothes. I remember visiting Hagerstown and looking at all the cool plates you collected from your travels around the world. I remember playing with all those toy horses at your house. It was really fun. I looked forward to visiting you and spending time in Hagerstown. I remember how you and aunt Vonnie took me to all the historic sites around Hagerstown. Thank you for coming out to my high school graduation, college graduation, and my wedding. Thank you for always remembering my birthday, Yolanda's birthday, the children's birthdays. Thank you for sending the holiday cards for every occasion. You were the best grandma one could ever have. You taught me how to be caring and kind to others. Thank you. I love you so much. Goodbye. I will see you in the next life.
