    Dear Grandma, I will deeply miss your warm hugs and cherished moments of sharing recipes with you. Your baking skills were truly remarkable, just like your beauty, inside and out. I hope you've found a peaceful place surrounded by love. You gave so much love and asked for so little in return. Even when others let you down, you remained a pillar of strength and support. Your incredible spirit will be etched in my memories forever. With love and fond memories, Paige and Elise
