Thank you for accepting me into your family and treating me as your own grand daughter. As Deborah said above, there are just so many memories 2 be Thankful for. I am so thankful for all the times you were there for me. I am Thankful for you being there thru my Brain Tumor and all the times u took me 2 the endless Dr appointments. I am Thankful for your words of wisdom and encouragement when I was going thru hard times. I am Thankful for the head rubs you did when I had one of my migraines. But most of all, I am so very Thankful for all the love you showed me over the years. I will miss you greatly, but I am so Thankful for all the memories we made. Till we meet in Heaven, remember I love you always and forever. Princess
