I keep thinking of the last time I saw you smile and that if I only had an opportunity to talk to you one last time, to see that and to say goodbye.
Telling the kiddos Grammy was the hardest, they are so lost. This is such a huge loss for the family.
Mom said that you looked at peace when she said her goodbyes, I hope you always look that way and are able to rest in peace. I'm so glad that you got to see all who Joey and I were meant to be, thank you for always believing in us ♡ You saw me marry my bestfriend Grammy, a day I'll never forget, because you were part of it. Or Joedans amazing that you were here for Armando adopting Joedan as his own ♡
Grammy we love
... you so much, always and forever in our hearts is where you'll stay.
Until we meet again.

Dottie was a very nice neighbor. We've missed seeing her out in the yard the last couple years where we had many nice chats. She would occasionally laughingly holler to us that she had locked herself out and we had a mini adventure helping her get back in. She will be missed.
