My Grandma is an amazing woman. She battled Cancer and went to appointment after appointment, and she never gave up. She was tired but she still fought. I'm so proud of my Grandma Virgie. She will forever be in my heart and soul. She's a part of me and when I face something and feel like giving up, I'm will think of her. My Grandpa Brian will always love her and it's going to be hard on him and the rest of us, but with her strength leading the way, we will move forward. Thank you for everything Grandma. Bella, Eli, Sherlock and Malachi love and miss you too. Say hi to Tinkerbell for us. Bet she was happy to see you again. You may be gone, but you're never going to be forgotten.

"Faith is not about the outcome, it is about the outlook" this life is temporary, and you are in your forever home. We miss you dearly, momma. You were my hero. I can look in the mirror and love myself more, looking just like you everyday. You showed us so much strength. Taught us the selfless love that we now carry. The forgiveness that you shared showed us love has no boundaries. The glue that we will all will continue to use to keep this family together for you. I'm so proud of you, mom. Strongest and most beautiful woman in this life that we got share together. You created such a beautiful family, momma. Until we meet again....I will be waiting. I love you so much.
