  1. I made an account just for this comment. No one has even liked this besides me even though this has been here for 2 years. so I’m leaving something so this doesn’t go completely unnoticed. two years later and I still miss you greatly. you’ve done so much for me and I feel like I haven’t done enough for you even now. I wish I could have done better and could have done more for you in the past and I just hope I don’t disappoint you with wherever I end up in the future. I love you and miss you, grandma
