It’s been three years since you left this world far too soon, and not a day goes by that I don’t think about you. I try to make you proud in everything I do, and I know you’d be so happy to see how far I’ve come. Every time I go on a date with Alex, I think about how much you would have loved him. I think about the jokes you two could have made at my expense and how you would have loved him being part of our family. I think about how happy you would’ve been on Alyssa’s wedding day and how thrilled you would’ve been to find out you were going to have a great-granddaughter. We all know how much you wanted to be around long enough to have a great-grandchild, and it’s so bittersweet that you won’t be here to watch Alyssa have her little girl. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Baby Marley is due in August; I think it’s a reminder that you’re watching over us.
I miss you, Grandma…I really do. I know I used to make jokes, but I swear that I loved you (but I think you always knew that). I’ll never forget the trips we took and how you always made it a point to spoil us. You made my first 20 years on this Earth unforgettable…and I hope that Alyssa and I made your last 20 years unforgettable too.
I know you’re always with me in whatever I do and wherever I go, and I know you’d be so proud of the woman I am today. I love you and miss you, and I wish I could have just one more day with you.
Rest in Paradise, Grandma. I love you.
