in loving memory

(april 2, 1912 – november 20, 2006)

dear grandma b,
i know
that distance & language barriers have prevented us to be close.
but i hope you know now that i will always remember & love you.
you were of a different generation & different culture,
& while i did not understand or mistook your ways as overly strict or strange,
i realize now that you loved us the best that you knew how.
your loving daughter, my mom, is on her way to see you &
she will make sure you will be properly laid to rest.
she will also make sure your memory will be kept alive
& passed on down the generations.
i will do the same to the best of my ability & memory.
grandma, know that my wish for you now is
that you may now rest in peace.
love your firstborn granddaughter,
mary ann xoxoxo
