Vovo was very a important women that I have ever known. I know now that she is in a better place and she is finally resting and she is with God. Although it kills me to say goodbye she is now an internal peace. My grandmother was one of the sweetest women to walk this earth, she was loving caring nurturing and just an amazing woman. I will cherish all the moments that we had, and I will forever keep her spirits alive and her legacy. I will make sure that my daughters know exactly who she was and how important she was to me. I love her with all of my heart. Im going to miss you so much I just pray that she continues to rest in peace and watches over the family to guide and protect us always. You were truly an angel on earth I know you got to be one in heaven.
