    Dear Grandma,
    I miss you greatly and watching you in the hospital room was probably my greatest pain yet, but thats not how I would like to remember you, I remember you as my cheerleader, you were always there for me when I needed you most, or at most of my events, i’m so greatful that you were able to make it to my talent show, I was soooo happy when i spoted you and gramps there, not a care in the world could make me stop singing my heart out for you, it was like i was the sun and you were the planet that no matter how rough things got, you never stop orbiting around me once. i can’t explain how happy i am and always will be to know that you never stopped loving me even when i was not cheerful, i love you grandma, and i want you to know that when i walk out on the stage for my singing competition, i won’t be singing for me, i will be singing for you. i love you and i know you love me too, and i can’t wait for another 60 or 70 years to be able to come see you and nana, but until then, i miss you and i wish i could kiss you, but you will forever stay in my heart, and i love you

    yours forever and ever,
    Your Ally Cat. (Alexis)
