So so so sorry Jill about your mom. This is a tough moms are so extra special. I know you two were super close, it will be rough for a long long while. Your mom was such a great gal.

Grandma, oh how I will miss you. I looked up to you more than I think you ever knew. I felt like we were the same person at times with how we thought.......except you weren't ever afraid to say what was on your mind. I admired your strength, you were so strong for your family, family was number one for you. I wish our last phone call had been longer, you spoke about so many good memories and it made my day. I didn't see the importance of that phone call at the time. I find comfort in knowing that you no longer feel pain and sadness......that now, you are truly whole and your spirit is always with me. I still talk to you, I will always remember my amazing grandma, I will speak about your humor and love to my children. I will ALWAYS love and cherish your memory and the love you gave me. Rest in the sweetest of peace Grandma.
